Mandibular Fracture Through an Endosseous Implant

David C. Shonberg, DDS/Herbert D. Stith, DDS/Lee M. Jameson, DDS, MS/John Y. Chai, BDS, MS

A patient with a severely resorbed mandible was treated with five Brånemark fixtures. Following stage 1 surgery, the patient experienced an apparently spontaneous fracture involving the left terminal implant. The implant was left in place and the fracture was treated with mandibular splinting and intermaxillary fixation. The fracture healed and the implant became osseointegrated. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1992;7:401—404.)

Key words: endosseous implant, mandibular fracture
