Dental implants – Transosteal Implants

Transosteal implants are one-piece, transmandibular, complex implants that also are available as individual abutments. For this type of implant, a submental skin incision must be made under surgical conditions.
An advantage of the transosteal implant is its predictable longevity. Several designs are available, and because of the implants’ long-term predictability, several patients still have prostheses supported by them. Designs include a single component device ( Fig. 2-7 ) and several varieties of multiple component, staple devices ( Fig. 2-8 ).
