ABSTRACT
A survey of experience treating patients with extraoral implants for facial prosthesis retention in 13 United States centers and in Sweden has been completed. Patients who have not received radiation for elimination of malignant disease can be treated with reasonably good expectations for long-term success. Reported success rates indicate that patients who have received radiation should be selected carefully and treated with caution, since overall success rates in this category are disappointingly low.

    An endosseous implant that should allow osseointegration as well as fixation by connective tissue has been developed. A special surface structure consisting of titanium wire loops on a titanium implant was produced by diffusion bonding. The mechanical properties of this implant are investigated.

    One hundred eighty-seven implants were placed in the maxillary posterior areas of 44 partially edentulous patients (29 female; 15 male). The mean age was 62 years (range 36 to 82 years). Fifty-one of the 187 implants were placed in the pterygomaxillary area and further restored with fixed...
