Partial Lateralization of the Nasopalatine Nerve at the Incisive Foramen for Ridge Augmentation in the Anterior Maxilla Prior to Placement of Dental Implants: A Retrospective Case Series Evaluating Self-Reported Data and Neurosensory Testing

Clinical management of the nasopalatine nerve at the nasopalatine foramen has often been discussed; however, there is minimal data published on the topic. This article presents follow-up clinical evaluations and patient questionnaire results on 20 patients (51 dental implants) treated over a 9-year period after guided bone regeneration (GBR) of the anterior maxilla involving partial lateralization of the nasopalatine neurovascular bundle. The study provides a clinical approach for surgical management of the nasopalatine nerve lateralization during GBR and provides data with a mean follow-up of more than 4 years after implant loading. Neurosensory changes were limited to 30% of the patients.
