Oral rehabilitation of patients with mandibular discontinuity defects is a problem that faces both the oral surgeon and the restorative dentist. Advances in microvascular surgery can provide the mandible with vital bone grafts. Often, reconstruction of the bony defect alone does not guarantee an adequate foundation for successful conventional prosthetic rehabilitation. Osseointegrated implants placed in the microvascularized grafted bone offer an opportunity for improved function and patient satisfaction. This case report describes the use of an implant supported bridge in a vascularized fibular bone graft to reconstruct a traumatic partially resected mandible.

Although numerous technological advances have improved the ability of implant practitioners to successfully reconstruct dental implants, providing patients with teeth during the immediate postsurgical period has remained problematic. One solution has been the development of temporary implants. Such provisional implants eliminate the need for a tissue-borne prosthesis that may interfere with the healing of the submerged conventional implants and/or grafting material. This article describes the methodology for placing immediate provisional implants. Three alternative approaches to fabrication of the temporary prosthesis are discussed, and the results of 12 cases are reviewed.
» Ridge Widening and Immediate Implant Placement

Alveolar atrophy may present an anatomical limitation to the placement of endosseous implants. A case is described of severe maxillary alveolar atrophy with immediate implant placement associated with a ridge widening technique in accordance with a split-crest-bone manipulation. Taper-shaped implants were applied in this technique without a barrier membrane. Because this implant was small and tapped into position, it was easier to use and was considered to be appropriate for the ridge widening technique associated with immediate implant placement.
» Inadequate Implant Angulation Resulting From Oroantral Fistula

Successful implant surgery is largely dependent on good treatment planning and careful surgery. A complete treatment plan must encompass both surgical and prosthetic considerations for the implant restoration. Some compromised implants are restorable, and the result can be acceptable if they can be adjusted into a more ideal position. The goals of the segmental osteotomy are the preservation of a healthy dental unit, the creation of a more ideal environment for dental restoration and occlusal reconstruction, the optimization of cost effectiveness, and the minimization of edentulous space. The purpose of this study is to present the segmental maxillary osteotomy to reposition the alveolar segment with its implant that was in a highly compromised situation.

Immediate postextraction implant placement often deals with two major problems: maintaining the initial stability of the implant(s) and preventing soft tissue ingrowth during the healing period. Both problems may lead to the loss of the implant(s). The objective of this clinical study was to evaluate the effectiveness, reliability, and placement of single-stage implants in extraction sockets in combination with a synthetic bone substitute. Hopeless teeth were extracted and one-stage cylindrical screw implants, hollow and solid, were inserted together with a composite polymer without using a membrane. Rehabilitation was performed three to six months postoperatively by placement of different types of prostheses. Excellent initial results were confirmed by the follow-up of 7 to 10 years. The hollow screw-type showed a higher failure rate when compared with the solid screw-type. One-stage implant osseointegration in extraction sockets is enhanced if used with this synthetic graft material, and the simplicity of the method does not jeopardize outcome and predictability. It provides the patient with the benefits of implantsupported restorations in a simple, quick, cost-effective, and secure manner.
