The use of oral implants in patients with congenital or acquired oral
Oral implants have become the treatment of choice in the rehabilitation of patients
with oral defects. They provide retention for both removable and fixed prostheses
and allow us to restore oral function and aesthetics in most cases. This lecture
will give an overview of the possibilities and limitations of implant treatment in
more advanced cases. Several medical disciplines are involved in the treatment, but
the main focus in this lecture will be prosthetic rehabilitation. Problems related
to cleft lip and palate, hemifacial microsomia, acromegalia and head- and
neck-cancer are among the topics that will be discussed.
