Rehabilitation of an edentulous posterior mandible to restore function and arch stability can be accomplished with a removable partial denture or an implant supported fixed partial denture. If the alveolus is severely resorbed, implant placement becomes challenging due to inadequate bone and the position of the inferior alveolar nerve. This report details a situation where a mandibular fracture occurred soon after inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) transposition and simultaneous implant placement. The prosthodontic reconstruction was completed using a fixed-dental prosthesis.
