Autologous bone is reported by scientific literature as the gold standard for the replacement of the bone loss in maxillary atrophic area. Notwithstanding, this grafting type shows several disadvantages as: The procedure morbidity, limited size of the graft and longer recovering time. Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein type 2 (rhBMP-2) has been used as bone substitute for the reconstruction of large bone defects. The aim of this case was to report a clinical case exhibiting the reconstruction of the atrophic maxilla through using rhBMP-2 as grafting material associated with absorbable collagen sponge (ACS). At 8 months of following-up, osseointegrated implants were placed. After 2 years and 5 months of following-up, it could be observed an appropriate aesthetical and functional rehabilitation.
