Abstract

Many types of osseointegrated implants that are very reliable and supported by scientific medium- and long-term studies are presently available. Often, unfavorable anatomic situations require bone augmentation procedures either prior to or at the same time as implant placement. Some of these procedures present limits. Using versatile implant systems is desirable in cases such as advanced osseointegration, intraoral bone grafts or guided bone regeneration techniques, or major surgical reconstruction with bone grafts from the hip. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the Frialit-2 implant in 29 clinical cases of maxillary and mandibular reconstruction using different bone augmentation techniques, and to consider its success ratio through a 1- to 5-year follow-up.
