Abstract

The objective in treating patients with injuries sustained in craniofacial trauma is to reinstate preinjury facial projection and function. The capability of providing spatially related facial reconstruction is predicated on basic craniofacial surgical principles, generally accepted as the standard of care. These principles include early surgical intervention, immediate bone grafting, and the use of internal rigid fixation. The introduction of osseointegrated dental implants has significantly improved the overall reconstruction of patients with cranio-maxillofacial injuries, including soft tissue repair and cosmetic surgery. The purpose of this article is to review the utilization of dental implants in the context of maxillofacial trauma, using three cases to document the clinical procedure.
