A Dental Implant in the Infratemporal Fossa: Case Report


Pier Francesco Nocini, MD, DDS/Daniele De Santis, MD, DDS/Biancastella Morandini, MD/Pasquale Procacci, MD


PMID: 23869377

Although computer-aided systems in implant surgery represent a reliable and effective tool, the surgeon should always instruct the patient on the necessary behavior during implant placement and the risks associated with a lack of adherence to these recommendations.
