Replacement of the central arch of the mandible by an implant.

Abstract

The use of an alloplastic implant to fill the defect after resection of the central part of the mandible is described. This procedure makes the post-operative course more acceptable for the patient, and facilitates later reconstruction by a free bone graft in the absence of recurrence.
