Online Article: Inferior Alveolar Nerve Medialization for Dental Implant Placement: Case Report with the Introduction of a New Technique
Sharifi, Reza / Beshkar, Majid / Mobayeni, Mahmoud Reza / Hasheminasab, Mahboube
Inferior alveolar nerve repositioning is an option for treating the edentulous posterior mandible with insufficient bone height above the inferior alveolar canal. This report presents a case in which inferior alveolar nerve medialization was performed for placing dental implants. In the second postoperative week, mandibular fracture occurred after biting on a relatively solid piece of food, which was treated conservatively.
