The distraction osteogenesis is a surgical method that allow us to increase the height of the alveolar ridge promoting new formation of bone and achieving in the process a significant increase of soft tissue (nerves and vessels) in the surrounding area what is called distraction histogenic, giving a predictable result, with low rates of infection and morbility, an with a shorter period of time to rehabilitation in comparison with other techniques. However, there are complications that should be treated depending on the stage of the treatment in which they occur; in this article describe such complications and their treatments, and a clinical case of alveolar distraction on iliac graft to mandibular reconstruction is presented.

Key words: Alveolar distraction.
