This study aims to show the completion of a clinical case using homologous bone grafts in Dentistry for partial reconstruction of the maxilla. The grafts decrease in morbidity, when compared to the need for a second intra or extraoral surgical site to use autogenous bone, made us choose this alternative bone reconstruction of the patient and have shown to be able to receive implants and prosthetic rehabilitation safely. Methods: a portion of homologous bone (iliac crest) derived from the bone bank at the Federal University of Paraná was used. Part of the graft was ground and used to fill the maxillary sinus and placed in apposition of the anterior region. Results: The execution of a CT scan of the grafted area 08 months after the surgery showed enough bone availability to receive 08 immediately loaded implants. Conclusion: The result of homologous bone graft achieved in the clinical case allowed 8 implants to be placed in areas that received grafts and proved capable of receiving stable and asymptomatic masticatory forces with immediate loading and during 15 months of follow up.
