Abstract

The distance between the alveolar crest and the inferior alveolar nerve in the atrophied posterior mandible may sometimes be insufficient for implant placement. In such cases one of the treatment options is inferior alveolar nerve repositioning technique. Possible complications with this technique are nerve disfunction, infection and pathologic fractures. In this paper, report of a case with repositioning technique and prosthetic rehabilitation is presented.
