Mandibular flexure and dental implants: a case report



Mandibular flexure and dental implants: a case report



Implant Dentistry 9(1): 90-95



The mandibular deformation as a result of jaw movement from rest position has been studied and documented by other authors. Here, we report that there is a possible correlation between this phenomenon and the discomfort experienced by a patient rehabilitated with implant-supported restoration for the mandibular arch during function. The recovery from pain and symptoms was achieved only after splitting the prosthesis into three sections. This case report serves to remind clinicians of the importance of following biological concepts as the key to a successful result.
