High-Resolution Computerized Tomography and Nuclear Bone Scanning in the Diagnosis of Postoperative Stress Fractures of the Mandible: A Clinical Report
Rothman, Stephen L. G. / Schwarz, Melvyn S. / Chafetz, Neil I.
Root-form titanium dental implants are the treatment of choice for many partially and totally edentulous patients. The overall success rate is greater than 95%. Postoperative pain is usually the result of infection. This report presents two cases involving a sudden onset of jaw pain. Computerized tomographic scanning revealed that the pain was caused by stress fracture of the mandible.
