Abstract

Conventional dental implants have been reported for nasal and orbital regions but due to limited thickness of calvarium they are not used in mastoid region. Onlay bone grafting in skull concomitant with implants is a predictable method and experimental animal studies confirm it. Parietal bone and lateral mandibular ramus are suggested source of bone grafts and dental implants with 7 mm length can be used safely. Increased fixture length may lead to increase survival in long term.
