Various radiographic and surgical techniques have been recommended to avoid paresthesia following mandibular implant placement. However, nerve impingement is sometimes inevitable, and when lingering numbness is reported, clinicians have a limited number of corrective options. This report describes a technique for cutting-back the apex of the implant, a technique that may be useful when lingering numbness persists after osseointegration has occurred.
