Objectives. The aim of this article is to evaluate the most effective reconstructive-regenerative and/or implant techniques available for increasing the vertical bone height of atrophic mandibles, according to the biological material used. Materials and methods. We analyzed data from 14 randomized clinical trials that met the criteria for inclusion in Cochrane reviews. Results and conclusions. Vertical bone regeneration can be achieved in the atrophic posterior mandible, but complications are frequent. Furthermore, it is not clear which technique is the best. When the atrophic mandible is totally edentulous, the best approach seems to be intraforaminal placement of short implants (8-11 mm). It is a relatively easy procedure that can be done on an outpatient basis and is associated with lower morbidity.
