Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to report what appears to be an unusually high number of head and neck malignancies in a limited group of patients where primary referral was to undergo implant procedures. While the tumors were probably coincidental, the occurrences point out the importance of careful oral examinations, particularly in this age group.
