Implant placement in a cemento-osseous dysplasia: a case report

We present a 45-year-old black woman diagnosed with a florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) affecting the right lower quadrant and the anterior mandibular region. The patient requested dental implants to rehabilitate the edentulous central lower incisors area (teeth # 31 and # 41) corresponding to a periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia (PCOD). Successful osseointegration of the two implants was obtained using a two-step procedure in order to limit the risk of complications associated with implant placement. Follow-up at one year showed no recurrence and good implant stability. Due to the abnormal quality of the bone in cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD), implant placement is generally avoided, and no other case reports have been reported in the literature in patients affected by PCOD. The present case suggests that in an appropriate clinical setting, implant placement may be a successful procedure.
