Modified Segmental Osteotomy for Relocation of Malpositioned Implant: Case Report.

da Silva AL, Borba AM, Bandeca MC, Volpato LE, Porto AN, Freitas DL, Borges AH - J Int Oral Health (2015)

Bottom Line: Obtaining a good cosmetic and proper mastication in oral rehabilitation with dental implants are directly linked to the correct positioning of the implant in the alveolar bone.Another option is the modified segmental osteotomy that aims repositioning osseointegrated implant with the surrounding bone.The objective of this case report is to present a case where an implant was severely malpositioned after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion, requiring a modified segmental osteotomy technique to reposition it.

ABSTRACT
Obtaining a good cosmetic and proper mastication in oral rehabilitation with dental implants are directly linked to the correct positioning of the implant in the alveolar bone. The malposition of the implant is a challenge in rehabilitation, which can often compromise the entire process. In cases of severely malpositioned implants, one has the option to remove it or leave it submerged under bone and gums. Another option is the modified segmental osteotomy that aims repositioning osseointegrated implant with the surrounding bone. The objective of this case report is to present a case where an implant was severely malpositioned after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion, requiring a modified segmental osteotomy technique to reposition it.

Mentions: A 30-year-old woman with good general health was referred to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of the University General Hospital of the University of Cuiaba for surgical correction of transverse maxillary atresia. On examination, it was observed that in addition to the transverse maxillary atresia, an osseointegrated implant was placed to replace superior left canine (Figure 1a-c). Prior to the SARPE, pre-operative panoramic radiography was evaluated (Figure 2) and the patient was explained over the possibility of having the implant malpositioned.
