Replacement of a Failed Full-Arch Maxillary PFM Prosthesis with a TRINIA® Full-Arch Prosthesis Supported on Six Bicon SHORT® Implants Using Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutments and Digital Prosthetic Techniques

Posted on in Fixed, SHORT® Implants, Sinus Lifts

This case demonstrates both the surgical and prosthetic treatments, which provided a seventy-five-year-old professional male patient (who travels frequently) with the comfort of having a fixed maxillary prosthesis throughout his three years of treatment. Initially, a single molar implant was placed with an internal sinus lift procedure, which after its integration provided stability for a fixed transitional prosthesis. Immediately following the extraction of two right premolar teeth and a left molar and their replacement with implants, a transitional prosthesis was inserted.

After the integration of the three additional implants, his remaining teeth were removed, and a second transitional TRINIA® prosthesis was inserted onto four Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutments (FDUAs), which provided aesthetics and comfortable functioning during the healing of a significant anterior bone grafting procedure utilizing SynthoGraft® with a titanium mesh membrane and osseointegration of two additional implants. Subsequent to the osseointegration of the newly placed implants and the removal of the failed left posterior implant, a digital abutment-level scan or impression was made for the fabrication of a permanent screw-retained TRINIA® prosthesis on five implants with FDUAs and Copings. A sixth implant abutment, which was too facially positioned is being initially used as a rest and will be replaced with an angled FDUA and retrofitted chairside with a Coping to a more palatal position after further maturation of the significant anterior bone graft.

An occlusal registration was made using conventional material between the mandibular teeth and the palate and alveolar ridge areas of the maxilla. Unfortunately, since the digital abutment-level full-arch intraoral scan was apparently not precisely accurate, an abutment-level conventional open tray impression was made. The screw-retained Impression Copings were joined with an injectable resin material to assure their relative positioning within the impression material. Using the new stone model, the FDUA Copings were repositioned in the TRINIA® prosthesis, which was subsequently successfully seated intraorally. Once the final TRINIA® prosthesis with five FDUA Copings was passively seated on the six implants, it was fastened in place with different standard lengths of retention screws, whose lengths were shortened so that they were slightly below the occlusal surface of the prosthesis. The spaces between the Vaseline-coated retention screws and the TRINIA bores were filled with an injectable resin, which facilitated the removal of the prosthesis for the removal of any extraneous resin cement prior to being refastened with retention screws, which were aesthetically covered with a composite resin.

Twelve-Year Radiographic Follow Up of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an Internal Sinus Lift Using SynthoGraft™ and an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SHORT® Implants, Sinus Lifts

This case radiographically demonstrates the extraction, implant placement of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an internal sinus lift using SynthoGraft™, and restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a fourty-six-year-old male patient over twelve years. It is also an excellent radiographic example of Wolff’s Law of bone, which states that “bone will adapt to the loads under which it is placed …and become stronger” — form follows function!

Seven-Year Radiographic Follow Up of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant Using a Sinus Lift Abutment and an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Extraction, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Sinus Lifts

This case radiographically demonstrates the extraction, implant placement of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with a Sinus Lift Abutment, and its restoration with a 20mm long Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) in a sixty-nine-year-old male patient over 84 months. It is also an excellent radiographic example of Wolff’s Law of bone, which states that “bone will adapt to the loads under which it is placed …and become stronger” — form follows function!

Placement and Immediate Loading with a Mandibular Full-Arch TRINIA® Prosthesis of Four Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutment Transitional Implants

Posted on in Bridges, Fixed, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Two Stage

This case demonstrates the placement of two 4.0 x 6.0mm and two 4.0 x 8.0mm Standard Profile Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutment Transitional Implants using guided surgery and their immediate loading with a mandibular full-arch screw-retained TRINIA® prosthesis with cemented copings within the bores of the TRINIA® prosthesis, subsequent to the placement of four Bicon SHORT® Implants also using guided surgery for their 2.0mm pilot osteotomies.

Two Full-Arch TRINIA® Telescopic Restorations Featuring Seven Implant Placements and the Use of Both Retentive and Custom Cast Copings for a Seventy-Year-Old Patient in Five Clinical Visits

Posted on in Extraction, Fixed, Immediate Placement, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Telescopic Restorations, Two Stage, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the extraction of six teeth and the placement of four maxillary implants (two using sinus lift abutments and others using bone grafting procedures with SynthoGraft™ and Bicon Resorbable Collagen Membranes) and three mandibular implants, uncovering of implants and two conventional implant-level transfer impressions, two occlusal bite registrations, insertion of the mandibular TRINIA® restoration with three cemented Retentive Copings on Universal Abutments and the insertion of the maxillary TRINIA® restoration with four custom cast Sci-tec copings on modified Universal Abutments for a seventy-year-old female patient. The entire treatment was achieved in only five clinical visits during a seven-month period without fabricating any new transitional prostheses.
