Inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) damage may be one of the distressing complications occurring during implant placement. Because of the nature of closed injury, a large portion is approached non-invasively. This presentation includes our experiences of the outcomes of conservative management of the injured nerve during dental implant procedures and introduction of new inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) defect repair method that does not require a nerve graft.
