RESUMEN. La incorporación de implantes dentales al Sistema Estomatognático genera muchos cuestionamientos, entre ellos:              ¿Cómo se explica que el paciente “sienta” a través de estos sistemas de anclaje?; ¿Por qué el paciente dice que mastica mejor que con las prótesis mucosoportadas?;¿Por qué a pesar de haber perdido dos componentes fisiológicos esenciales (dientes y periodonto) no se aprecian clínicamente importantes problemas dentro del sistema?; ¿Qué reordenamientos del sistema nervioso determinan la regulación motora luego de rehabilitado con estas técnicas? Es probable que las respuestas surjan a través del conocimiento de una nueva modalidad sensorial descripta como oseopercepción, la cual implica un reordenamiento de las áreas sensitivas y motoras de la corteza cerebral (neuroplasticidad).
