Özet

Purpose: Extraoral implants provide the prostheses excellent stability and retention. However, the use of implants in the orbit showed questionable survival rates. Furthermore, evaluation of this treatment from the patients' point of view is lacking in clinical studies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate outcomes of implant-retained prosthetic treatment of orbital defects in implant survival, peri-implant soft tissue health, and patients' satisfaction.
