Dental Implant-related Injuries to the IAN

This session covers injuries to branches of the trigeminal nerve secondary to implant placement. As implant placement has significantly increased as the preferred method of replacing missing teeth, complications from this procedure also are on the rise. Injuries to the inferior alveolar nerve are either due to compression, causing a neurapraxia, or more serious injury, lacerating or transecting the neurovascular bundle. These injuries are managed differently. This presentation discusses the types of nerve injuries that can occur during implant placement. Methods of avoiding nerve injuries also are also presented as well as strategies to work up and manage a known nerve injury. Case presentations of nerve repairs are also presented.
