A technique is presented whereby a median mandibulotomy of an atrophic edentulous mandible is performed to gain access to an oropharyngeal tumor and is subsequently reapproximated with a four-pin FMI. The procedure allows reduction of the osteotomy site and provides intraoral implants that increase the stability and retentive properties of a mandibular prosthesis.
