Mandibular Rehabilitation: A Case Study Using Inferior Cadaver Graft
Balshi, Thomas J. / Magid, Mitchell J.
The visor-sandwich osteotomy augmentation and onlay bone grafts are among the various methods for rehabilitating the lower third of the face and restoring oral function. However, these methods have provided unpredictable results. When sufficient bone is available for reconstruction of atrophic jaws with endosseous implants, this can be the treatment of choice. In patients with insufficient bone available for conventional implant treatment, the use of an adjunctive inferior border graft may be considered.
