Dental implant failure can be caused by several biomechanical and biological factors. Management of failed multiple adjacent dental implants can be challenging, as the amount of bone loss around these implants is often high. This necessitates the need to restore the supporting bone and replace the failed implants with new implants in optimal positions and with a favorable dental prosthetic option. This report describes a case of a 27-year-old female who presented with failed multiple adjacent maxillary dental implants following orofacial trauma and with a significant amount of supporting bone loss. The patient was managed by implants removal, bone grafting and implant-supported fixed hybrid prosthesis, which resulted in a positive outcome, despite several challenges.
