Osteogenesis of the Mandible Associated with Implant Reconstruction: A Patient Report

Thomas D. Taylor, DDS, MSD

PMID: 2639122

A patient report is presented illustrating bone growth of the posterior mandible associated with a fixed implant reconstruction of the Brånemark type. In this instance, the mandible had grown vertically approximately 3 mm and was causing discomfort beneath the cantilever sections of the prosthesis because of gingival impingement between the restoration and the bony mandible. The literature relative to osteogenesis associated with osseointegrated implants is reviewed. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1989;4:227-231.)

Key words: hyperostosis, implants, osseointegration, osteogenesis
