Mandibular implant-supported fixed complete dental prostheses on implants with ultrashort and standard length: a pilot treatment

Publication date2020
Abstract

Edentulous patients may be restored with complete-arch implant-supported fixed complete dental prostheses (IFCDPs) on angled distal implants or on parallel implants distributed equally across the mandible to increase the area of support. A treatment is presented to introduce the clinical concept of providing edentulous patients with an implant-supported fixed complete dental prosthesison parallel tissue-level implants in the mandible with standard length implants interforaminally and ultrashort implants distally. A structured prosthetic approach was used for the tooth arrangement with a modified workflow as per the Biofunctional Prosthetic System adapted for static computer-aided implant surgery (s-CAIS) and computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) of the screw-retained implant-supported fixed complete dental prosthesis. The concept offered advantages in challenging anatomic, surgical, and prosthetic conditions; providing distal nonangled abutments and implant platforms, which were straightforward to clean. If necessary, the prosthesis could have been easily converted into a removable overdenture using the existing digital prosthetic arrangement. Should implant removal be required, the extrashort implants can be removed with minimal surgical risk or morbidity.
