  • The osseointegrated implants are successfully applied in the dental clinic including oral and facial rehabilitations mainly for patients submitted to mutilating surgeries. However, patients submitted to radiation therapy present risks to treatment with implants owing to adverse effects on bone tissue. Nowadays, literature suggests therapies to improve the success of osseointegration such as HBO therapy that aims to prepare bone and adjacent tissues to receive the implant.
  • Therefore, thorough understanding of HBO therapy and its applications is very essential for prosthodontists, periodontists, and other dental specialists to avail the benefits of this useful technique and improve the patient care.
