The aim of this article was to study a case report of full mouth rehabilitation in a severally periodontally compromised patient in which 18 single piece basal implants were inserted and functionally loaded with both maxillary and mandibular cement retained fixed partial denture. Basal implants were loaded immediately, and excellent results were obtained. Bone loss was measured and values were recorded immediately after implant placement and after 6 months. Basal implants are used to support single and multiple unit restorations in the upper and lower jaws. They can be placed in the extraction sockets and also in the healed bone. Their structural characteristics allow placement in the bone that is deficient in height and width. Basal implants are the devices of the first choice, whenever (unpredictable) augmentations are part of an alternative treatment plan. The technique of basal implantology solves all problems connected with conventional (crestal) implantology.
