The absence of teeth creates situations of extreme bone resorption, not allowing the installation of dental implants due to narrowness of the residual alveolar bone. In these cases, the osteotome technique permits us to separate and compress the bone, creating an proper artificial bed for the implants insertion.  In the present article we present a series of 18 patient, in whom 40 Steri-oss cylindrical HA-coated implants were installed; implants placement took place from September 1995 to February 1998. We describe the technique and present the results.  During the surgical procedure no complications were observed, neither during the postoperative period. After the second stage surgery, and before the starting of the prosthetic procedures, two implants corresponding to two different patients exhibit signs of absence of osseointegration, and we proceed to remove them.  We believe that the osteotomes technique is a good solution for those patients in which the width of the alveolar bone was not adequate for the implants installation.
