Abstract

In a review of 102 consecutive cases of the fixed mandibular implant there were no failures; all appeared clinically to be osseointegrated and functioning well. There were an unexpected number of gingival infections and instances of inflammatory gingival hyperplasia, but these have been reversible and manageable. A change in sleeve nut design has improved gingival health. The Fixed Mandibular Implant (Hall Reconstructive Systems, Carpinteria, CA) offers immediate denture stability and function, and provides the opportunity for a fixed, fixed removable, or overdenture prosthetic reconstruction.
