Team management of atrophic edentulism with autogenous inlay, veneer, and split grafts and endosseous implants: Case reports
Collins / Brown / Johnson / Massey / Nunn
Predictable success of autogenous graft and implant reconstructions is critically dependent on preoperative alignment and prosthetic considerations planned by the surgeon and the restorative dentist in a team approach. In such cases the surgeon has an opportunity to place accurate bone grafts that allow implants to be secured in both the correct position and correct axis for good prosthetic restoration. With careful thought, the restorative dentist and surgeon can plan the location, shape, and volume of an implant graft reconstruction. Nine requirements for successful onlay grating with implants and five case reports illustrating the team approach are presented.
