A full-arch rehabilitation with implants is often hampered by the presence of excessive bone resorption, whether by early tooth loss or due to the cleaning deficiency of supporting tissues and prosthetic infrastructure in areas that have already been rehabilitated with dental implants. In extensive cases, a new surgical-prosthetic approach is required that aims to recover some lost aspects, such as function and conditions, for a good location and esthetic cleaning. Thus, rehabilitation using the system MK1 fittings is well indicated. Such fittings provide the convenience of a fixed prosthesis without full palatal coverage. They are easy to remove for the patient and facilitate proper cleaning, especially in patients susceptible to peri-implant disease development. The aim of this study was to present the case of a patient who had been rehabilitated with the full prosthesis-type protocol established by the MK1 fittings system. Multidisciplinary treatment was performed to restore health to the peri-implant tissues by taking a new surgical approach and to achieve prosthetic conditions that offer better sanitation of the area as rehabilitated by the patient. Surgical planning successfully achieved the total removal of the condemned implants and treated the support structures. It was carried out graft in previous jaw and installation of new lower implants and prostheses protocol type using the MK1 locking system.
