Lateralization Technique and Inferior Alveolar Nerve Transposition.

Bottom Line: Bone resorption of the posterior mandible can result in diminished bone edge and, therefore, the installation of implants in these regions becomes a challenge, especially in the presence of the mandibular canal and its contents, the inferior alveolar nerve.The aim was to elucidate the success rate of implants in the lateralization technique and in inferior alveolar nerve transposition and to determine the most effective sensory test.We conclude that the success rate is linked to the possibility of installing implants with long bicortical anchor which favors primary stability and biomechanics.

ABSTRACT
Bone resorption of the posterior mandible can result in diminished bone edge and, therefore, the installation of implants in these regions becomes a challenge, especially in the presence of the mandibular canal and its contents, the inferior alveolar nerve. Several treatment alternatives are suggested: the use of short implants, guided bone regeneration, appositional bone grafting, distraction osteogenesis, inclined implants tangential to the mandibular canal, and the lateralization of the inferior alveolar nerve. The aim was to elucidate the success rate of implants in the lateralization technique and in inferior alveolar nerve transposition and to determine the most effective sensory test. We conclude that the success rate is linked to the possibility of installing implants with long bicortical anchor which favors primary stability and biomechanics.

Mentions: Osteotomy. The line of the upper horizontal osteotomy was performed 2.0 mm above the upper cortical bone of the mandibular canal; it was initiated 2.0 mm distal to the mental foramen and extended about 7.0 mm posterior to the distal implant, with the goal of not distending the neurovascular bundle too much. The lower horizontal osteotomy was performed 2.0 mm below the lower cortical bone of the mandibular canal. Two vertical osteotomies connected the two horizontal cuts, which were made 2.0 mm distal to the mental foramen as a safety margin (Figure 12).
