MAXILLARY & MANDIBULAR IMPLANTS
-- UTILIZING SIMPLANT
Statement of the problem: Loss of teeth in the either jaw will usually result in loss of function and aesthetics for the patient as well as loss of soft and hard supporting tissues. This bone loss is not limited to alveolar bone; portions of the basal bone may also resorb. This continuing loss of bone is associated with treatment complications, and in the case of the mandible, instability of the complete denture. Endosteal implants are routinely used to stabilize and support a prosthesis for a missing tooth or teeth and are placed into the remaining native bone if adequate. However with less than adequate bone support, grafting is considered essential for implant placement. The determination of what is adequate for implant support involves the need for pre-surgical PROSTHODONTIC EVALUATION and DIAGNOSIS.
It is essential to have 3-dimensional radiographic visualization of the implant site, with a surgical template or “SurgiGuide” available, besides the traditional diagnostically mounted casts and radiographs, in order to diagnosis and place implants with predictable results. The bone donor site can also be evaluated if autogenous bone grafting is needed.
using advanced dental imaging including
cone beam computerized tomography, (CBCT)
and “Simplant” an interactive software
for implant planning and placement, can
“improved patient treatment.
