Despite the apparent advantages provided by implants to the maxillofacial patient, complete documentation of these benefits is lacking in the literature. This review uses existing published material as a basis to discuss the efficacy of implant use in maxillofacial prosthetics and the biologic rationale of the procedures. The use of implants with bone-anchored hearing aids; in maxillofacial surgery; and in maxillary, mandibular, and facial defects is presented. Reliable and valid patient-based evidence of treatment success, as suggested by the NIH Consensus Conference of 1988, is needed.
