PET vs No PET
This is a warm up case for an upcoming presentation I am preparing for DentalXp (Maurice thank you for the honour).
I did not place the previous implants (7 years ago) so I do not know if ST or GBR was done at the time of placement. However, I believe that this still is an eye opener case as you can compare side by side implants placed in the past with standard protocols vs PET protocols.
I hope I will be able to follow up this case long term and see how things stand in time.
We utilised the Cervico System in this case in order to control the prosthetic space and create a proper cervical profile while at the same time respect the root shield position and avoid complications arising from pressure on the membrane shield from the prosthesis.
Unfortunately the patient was reluctant on taking a CBCT :((
