IMPLANT RETAINED FIXED PARTIAL DENTURE – A CASE REPORT

Dr. Amna Ali El Magtuf Ezawi

Abstract


The use of dental implants in the maxillary anterior region to replace missing teeth has gained widespread acceptance as a viable treatment option.As compared to a traditional crown and bridge placement or a removable denture placement a dental implant supported fixed partial denture has significant benefits. Non involvement of adjacent teeth, preservation of the residual ridge, better oral hygiene maintainance are the key ones.

Placing  dental  implant  in  the  maxillary  anterior region  requires  precise  planning,  surgery,  and prosthetic  treatment.  As this is in the aesthetic zone, a multi-step process needs to be followed that includes esthetics, phonetics, lip support, bone support, occlusion, medical and dental history, and patient expectations. This clinical report details the treatment procedure for  reconstruction of the anterior maxillary arch with an implant-supported fixed prosthesis. Diagnosis, treatment planning, and appointment sequence are described, as is the importance of establishing soft-tissue outcomes that enable the patient to properly clean the area.
