The objective of this study was to determine the long term stability of implants on mandibles reconstructed by microvascular bone transfer. We present two cases of mandible reconstruction, the first one was performed after tumor resection and the second one after gunshot injury. The reconstructions were performed by iliac crest osseous and osteocutaneous free flaps and the mean follow-up period was 8 years. The implant was an IMZ Titanium and a classic prosthetic system was used. No complication was observed (mucous ulceration, infiltration around the implant), and the feared friction phenomenon between the neo mucosa and the reconstructed bone has not been a problem for long term follow-up.
