Complications Associated with Rehabilitation of a Unilateral Partially Edentulous Mandible with Inferior Alveolar Nerve Transposition and Implant Placement: A Clinical Report

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Rehabilitation of an edentulous posterior mandible to restore function and arch stability can be accomplished with a removable partial denture or an implant supported fixed partial denture. If the alveolus is severely resorbed, implant placement becomes challenging due to inadequate bone and the position of the inferior alveolar nerve. This report details a situation where a mandibular fracture occurred soon after inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) transposition and simultaneous implant placement. The prosthodontic reconstruction was completed using a fixed-dental prosthesis.
