The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential presented by human dried fibula on regular implants installation (7 mm or more) and to search for a standard anatomical position of more appropriate areas. Thirty human dried fibulas, in five distinct areas of each bone, were evaluated in a tomographic study and the data were processed statistically. The results revealed that the thirty bones examined showed significant differences between the maximum and minimum values measured, without any anatomical standard for these differences and that only three of these bones showed values less than the standard 7 mm, but these same bones presented other dimensions compatible with the installation of implants. The differences between maximum and minimum values ranged from 2.50 mm up to 11.50 mm (p=0 000). The analyzed data showed that 29 of the 30 bones presented viable areas for the installation of regular implants. The indication for CT scan of the patient's fibulae can be a valuable test, to the installation of larger implants, thus increasing the survival of the implants and the success of oral rehabilitation.
