Aim: This article is a case report of a patient in whom the prosthetic planning indicated the necessity of an incisive canal deflation for the correct installation of all implant that is to be osseointegrated.Case Report. In the reopening phase after the bone graft installation, the incisive canal deflation (biopsy of its content) was done and titanium implants were installed with one of them invading the anatomical space occupied previously by the incisive canal. The biopsy analysis showed fragments of the incisive artery and nerve., which are responsible for the anterior upper-tooth pulp, the periodontium vascularization. and the innervation. Front the anastomosis present along with other structures allied with the absence of teeth in the region, there was no detriment to the patient caused by the deflation.Conclusion: Incisive canal deflation is a viable technique in implantology. It can permit ideal prosthetic planning with no detriment to the patient. (Implant Dent 2009;18:473-479)
