All On Six in 3 Hours
Patient received a superior prosthesis in occlusion and adapted to mucosa. The prosthesis was modified and a bite was used for X-Ray exam and for accurate surgical stent fixing on bone.
After the planning, a 'universal' type stent , was produced inhouse with a 3D printer.
The surgical procedure was flapless and it was possible to immediately place the multiabutments and cylinders on top.
Cylinders were immediately attached to the modified prosthetic and screwed to the implants.
We were able to complete the entire procedure within 3 hours time and patient walk out the office with prosthesis on.
I believe that digital planning could be a valuable tool, reducing time and simplifying surgical and prosthetic procedure, expecially on immediate loading.
