NEW! Replacing Three 25-Year-Old O-Ring Abutments with Three Universal Abutments for the Fabrication of a Mandibular TRINIA® Telescopic Full-Arch Prosthesis for a Seventy-Three-Year-Old Patient

Posted on in Overdentures, Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the removal of three 25-year-old O-Ring Abutments, implant-level impression technique, gothic arch tracing, placement of three Universal Abutments, cementation of retentive copings, and the insertion of a TRINIA® telescopic full-arch prosthesis on three mandibular implants for a seventy-three-year-old female patient.

Insertion of a Mandibular Full-Arch Telescopic Prosthesis on Three Bicon SHORT® Implants

Posted on in Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the insertion of three Universal Abutments using a resin seating jig and the adaptation of a TRINIA® prosthesis, prior to the cementing of three Retentive Copings into the bores of the TRINIA® prosthesis for a sixty-eight-year-old female patient.

Implant-Level Impression and Insertion of a Full-Arch Maxillary Telescopic TRINIA® Prosthesis on Three Universal Abutments and Retentive Copings

Posted on in SHORT® Implants, Telescopic Restorations

This treatment demonstrates the implant-level impression and insertion of a full-arch maxillary telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis with Retentive Copings, supported by only three 5 Series Universal Abutments on three Bicon SHORT® Implants.

Replacement of an Eighteen-Year-Old O-Ring-Retained Mandibular Overdenture with a Telescopic TRINIA® Prosthesis with Custom Cast Copings in Three Clinical Visits

Posted on in Overdentures, Telescopic Restorations

This treatment demonstrates the use of Gothic Arch tracing to record the patient’s centric occlusal relation, as well as the clinical techniques for the insertion of a mandibular telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis with custom cast chrome cobalt copings.

Fabrication of a Maxillary Telescopic TRINIA® Prosthesis and a Mandibular TRINIA® Overdenture and the Subsequent Conversion of the Mandibular Brevis™ O-Ring Overdenture to a Telescopic Prosthesis After One Year in Function

Posted on in Overdentures, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Telescopic Restorations

This treatment of a seventy-five-year-old woman, who was previously told by six clinicians that dental implants would be an impossible treatment option (despite the fact that one clinician augmented her right maxilla with graft material), clearly demonstrates the unmatched clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants and TRINIA® metal-free CAD/CAM material. The surgical placement of two maxillary and two mandibular implants is also shown, as well as the initial prosthetic restoration of a maxillary telescopic prosthesis and a mandibular Brevis™ O-Ring-retained mandibular overdenture, and the clinical and laboratory techniques for modifying and converting the mandibular Brevis™ O-Ring overdenture to a full-arch telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis after one year in function.

Replacement of 25-Year-Old Maxillary and Mandibular O-Ring Relined Overdentures with Telescopic TRINIA® Prostheses

Posted on in Overdentures, Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the clinical and laboratory techniques and procedures for the replacement of two twenty-five-year-old tissue-borne overdentures with a telescopic maxillary implant-borne prosthesis on four implants and a telescopic mandibular implant-borne prosthesis on only two implants with 24mm and 21mm cantilevers.

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.

Insertion of a Maxillary Full Arch TRINIA® Telescopic Prosthesis

Posted on in Telescopic Restorations

This treatment demonstrates the sequential use of a resin seating jig to facilitate the orientation and seating of four abutments for the insertion of a maxillary full arch TRINIA® telescopic prosthesis with two milled retentive copings and two custom cast chrome cobalt copings on four implants for a 59-year-old woman.

Insertion and Relining of a Maxillary Telescopic TRINIA™ Prosthesis

Posted on in Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the insertion of a maxillary full arch telescopic restoration with two conventional telescopic copings with yellow retentive inserts and two milled titanium copings on four implants, one of which is badly positioned.
