Abstract


Background- Diagnostic technology and restorative protocols have advanced to the point where implant therapy has the capacity to go far beyond the replacement of missing teeth. From straightforward single-tooth replacements to full-mouth reconstructions, clinicians can provide patients with restorations that significantly improve upon the function and esthetics with which the patient presents to the office. When treatment planning an implant case, rather than simply filling the edentulous space with an implant, it is imperative that clinicians evaluate and address the needs of the entire dental system.

Material and method- This case report considers a 53 year male with a chief complaint of difficulty in chewing because of his missing teeth in the upper and lower right and left-back tooth region for 2 years and wanted to undergo treatment for the same. After clinical and radiological examination, provisional diagnosis for Maxillary arch and Mandibular arch was Kennedy’s Class 1 Modification 1. Seven Adin Touareg- S implants(Adin Implant System Ltd. Israel) were placed and intentional RCT were carried out. The rehabilitation was done with fixed tooth-supported zirconia bridge prosthesis restoring anterior teeth and fixed Implant-supported screw-retained prosthesis replacing posterior missing teeth.

Conclusion- Although the patient presented for the restoration of missing teeth, a comprehensive evaluation determined that full mouth rehabilitation was needed to correct an array of dental issues. The treatment plan dramatically improved overall esthetics, comfort and function.
