Osseointegration and nerve transposition after mandibular resection to treat an ameloblastoma: A case report


PMID: 8593989
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0136

This case report demonstrates the use of osseointegrated implants to replace the mandibular left second premolar and first and second molars removed during a surgical resection of a walnut-sized ameloblastoma. The first-stage surgery was performed 2 years after the oncologic surgery, and it was necessary to laterally repositon the inferior alveolar nerve prior to placement of implants. The patient has been restored to full dental function. There was no occurrence of paraesthesia at any time. The treatment plan and the treatment were a collaboration of an oral surgeon, a periodontist, and a restorative dentist, located in Sweden, the United States, and Italy, respectively, and is an indication of what can be accomplished to the benefit of the patient when teamwork is exercised.
