BACKGROUND Oral implant treatment ad modum Brånemark has been used for decades in the rehabilitation of edentate and partially dentate patients. Posterior jaw regions frequently exhibit bone of poor texture, and it is often difficult to obtain primary stability. Thus, it may prove beneficial to deviate from the original protocol and to use implants with a(More)
Sixty-three patients with an arthrographic diagnosis of disk displacement with reduction were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: (I) onlays to maintain disk repositioning, (II) flat occlusal splint, or (III) untreated controls. Guidance for construction of the disk-repositioning onlays was established during arthrography to obtain a recaptured(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to evaluate a new method in the treatment of mandibular osteoradionecrosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eight patients, seven male and one female, with a mean age of 64 years (range, 43 to 67 years), suffering from osteoradionecrosis of the mandible, two bilaterally and six unilaterally, were treated. Five initially had(More)
PURPOSE This report reviews the results of immediate mandibular reconstruction performed with unosteotomized composite osteocutaneous forearm flaps using a lag screw technique for stabilization of the bone graft. PATIENTS AND METHODS Six patients, reconstructed as described, were followed-up for a mean period of 21 months postoperatively (range, 13 to 36(More)
Seventeen oral cancer patients (47 to 78 years, mean 67) were treated with external radiation in areas that included future implant sites. Implants were placed in the irradiated jaws after a period of 18 to 228 months (mean 88 months). The patients received 103 implants and were followed for 1 to 62 months (mean 21 months) after implant loading. The(More)
This paper presents a new method of reconstructing the mandible after ablative surgery for cancer. This method uses autogenous grafts consisting of the respected part of the mandible, which is hollowed out, defatted in chloroform/methanol, sterilized with ethylene oxide, irradiated with beta-radiation (dose 25 kGy), and stored for 7-10 months.
