• Evaluation of the existing mandibular alveolar boney volume in the edentulous mandible.
• Modification of the surgical technique for placement of tilted implants.
• Preoperative and the post-operative instructions.
This presentation will present the factors to consider when
placing axial, tilted implant in reconstruction of the edentulous
mandible. Preoperative determination of the position of the
mental loop of the inferior alveolar nerve prior to implant
placement will be reviewed. Algorithm to achieve adequate
insertion torque will be discussed. The abutment and its role
in the immediate conversion of the patient’s denture to a fixed
provisional will also be reviewed.
