Abstract: The success rates of craniofacial osseointegrated implants are not uniform throughout the craniofacial area. A better understanding of their clinical behaviour is needed. This article investigates current perspectives on the application of endosseous implants in the restoration of craniofacial defects. An online search was completed for the time period from 1966 to 2007, along with a manual search, to locate relevant peer-reviewed articles and textbooks published in English. A review of published reports of craniofacial application of endosseous implants in irradiated and non-irradiated tissue sites showed a strong correlation between anatomic sites and clinical success. Maxillofacial prosthetic considerations are also reviewed. © 2007 Elsevier. All rights reserved.
