NEW! Replacement of a Failed Screw-Retained Prosthesis with a Telescopic TRIO-TRINIA® Prosthesis with Milled Hybrid Polyceramic Teeth

Posted on in Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Telescopic Restorations, Uncovering

This treatment for an 83-year-old woman, who presented with a failed maxillary prosthesis supported by five screw-retained IMZ implants, demonstrates the clinical capabilities of a telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis supported by only three Bicon SHORT® Implants: two 4.5 x 6.0-mm implants with a 3.0-mm well, and one 4.0 x 6.0-mm implant with a 2.5-mm well. The laboratory techniques and procedures of this treatment are also presented. After five months of healing, the implants were uncovered and a telescopic TRIO-TRINIA® prosthesis was fabricated with milled hybrid polyceramic teeth.

Laboratory and Clinical Aspects of Fabricating and Inserting Four Universal Abutments for the Immediate Insertion of a Milled PMMA Telescopic Transitional Prosthesis and a Permanent Handcrafted Poly-ceramic Telescopic Prosthesis on a TRINIA® Framework with Three Milled Copings and One Custom Cast Chrome Cobalt Coping with an Interchangeable Retentive Attachment

Posted on in Telescopic Restorations, Uncovering

This treatment depicts the detailed aspects and nuances of the above-described prostheses in only three clinical restorative visits, which included:
During the first visit, the surgical uncovering of four implants, an implant-level transfer impression, the recording of an initial occlusal relationship, and choosing an aesthetic tooth shade.
During the second visit, the extraction of the four teeth, insertion of three unmodified and one modified Universal Abutment, which was unwisely modified to achieve an unnecessary aesthetic effect by using a custom cast chrome cobalt retentive coping, a second occlusal registration, and the insertion of a milled PMMA telescopic full arch transitional prosthesis, with gingiva-colored Ceramage material added for aesthetics, to confirm the appropriateness of the teeth arrangement as well as a transitional device for function while the extraction sites were healing and the permanent TRINIA® restoration was being fabricated. Alternatively, as a less expensive option, the PMMA prosthesis could have been affixed to the abutments without the telescopic copings.
During the third visit, the insertion of a handcrafted poly-ceramic telescopic restoration on a TRINIA® framework with three cemented milled retentive copings and one custom cast chrome cobalt coping with a yellow SiTec retentive attachment, as well as the intra-oral relining of the prosthesis with Ceramage.

Guided Bone Regeneration Technique and Implant Placement in an atrophic mandibular first molar site

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Uncovering

This treatment offers an alternative to ridge splitting procedures, demonstrating the molar implant placement and simultaneous guided bone regeneration of a 56-year-old woman’s atrophic left mandible. Because of the very thin and dense crestal bone, a high-speed drill was used to initiate the osteotomy prior to the successive use of latch and hand reamers, and the placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm implant, which was covered with SynthoGraft™ within a collagen membrane pocket. The 5-year post-insertion clinical and radiographic images reveal a successful treatment with significant bone gain.

Restoration of a Maxillary Left First Molar with an Abutment-Level Transfer Impression

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the process of fabricating an abutment-level transfer impression and a transitional crown with a 5L Universal Abutment after uncovering the implant in the area of the maxillary left first molar.

Extraction and Immediate Placement of a 3.0 x 8.0mm NARROW™ Implant for a Mandibular Central Incisor and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Surgical, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the insertion, restoration, and interdental papillae maturation of a 3.0 x 8.0mm NARROW™ Implant for a mandibular right central incisor over the course of a two-year period. This case also demonstrates the use of a hand reamer attached to a hand reamer extender.
