The article presents a consensus statement on osseoperception, which was developed as an outcome of the Symposium From Osseointegration to Osseoperception. Osseoperception may be considered to be the mechanosensibility associated with osseointegrated implant rehabilitation. This phenomenon may be defined as the sensation arising from mechanical stimulation of a bone-anchored prosthesis, transduced by mechanoreceptors that may include those located in muscle, joint, mucosal, cutaneous and periosteal tissues; together with a change in central neural processing in maintaining sensorimotor function.
