Segmental Full Arch Rehabilitation
A 73 year old man had a worn attrited teeth because of negligent oral care ,but the verticals dimension was maintained reason being supra eruption of the worn teeth.
We planned complete extraction of all hopeless teeth and eight implants in maxilla with six in mandible and segmented screw retained prosthesis, access holes on buccal were closed with composites.
It was quite a journey for me as during prosthesis fabrication one upper left molar implant failed ,which is being replaced now as single replacement. I deliberately avoided a cantilever in that area,as could have jeopardized the out come in long run of the prosthesis.iMPLANTS/BIOHORIZON
