Abstract

The published experience of extra-oral endosseous craniofacial implants (EOECIs) is reviewed. The definition of osseointegration, concept of success, the relative merit of one- or two-stage implant placement, EOECI design and control of peri-abutment skin infection are discussed. A plea is made for more consistent and objective reading of clinical experience of this technique.
