Correction of Implant Malalignment by Segmental Osteotomy: A Case Report
Svensson, Börje / Adell, Ragnar / Swartz, Barbro
This case report demonstrates that the position of malaligned osseointegrated implants can be corrected by a segmental osteotomy procedure with no loss of implants or bone support. The patient was a healthy teenage girl who sustained facial trauma with loss of teeth and alveolar bone. The defect was initially bone grafted. Brånemark implants were simultaneously placed in the graft. Their initial unfavorable positions and inclinations were later corrected by a segmental osteotomy.
