Considerations in Placement of Implants Through Existing Split-Thickness Skin Graft Vestibuloplasty: A Case Report
Bedrossian, Edmond / Gongloff, Richard K.
Many edentulous patients who previously have undergone vestibuloplasty with split-thickness skin grafting to improve denture stability and function seek additional help with dental implants. Problems encountered following the placement of four endosseous root-form dental implants in one such patient are presented. The anatomic and surgical considerations as well as methods available to circumvent these problems are discussed.
