Patient has a removable F/F denture and would like implants placed in the maxilla and mandibular for a fixed prosthesis at Herts Dental Implant Clinic in Watford. The patients previous denture was loose, ill fitting and difficult to wear during function. The patient has had X6 OSSTEM ® implants placed in the lower arch and the success of the lower arch to determine the upper arch.
Case study 1 - Removable Swissedent Implant Denture With Precision Attachments on Screw Retained CM Bar
Patient has severe mandibular bone loss and one LR7 tooth present. The patients previous denture was loose, ill fitting and difficult to wear during function . X3 implants was placed in the LLHS at Luton & Dunstable Hospital. The implant denture was made with locators and caused problems as the denture was lifting on the LRHS upon function and was not stable.
Bremadent was presented with this case that was unsuccessful with a previous dental laboratory. Once assessed, we found that the reason for the lifting of the denture was determined by the retention and reciprocation of the implant locators the LLHS thus causing the LRHS to lift on function due to severe mandibular bone loss and lack of retention which eventually dislodges the removable locator implant denture.
The treatment plan given was to create a Swissedent removable implant denture that utilizes precision attachments to clip onto a milled implant screw retained CM bar with the bar cantilevered to aid reciprocation . The Swissedent protocols would be used for aesthetics, hygiene and function whilst the screw retained CM bar and precision attachments would be used in conjunction for retention and reciprocation to create a aesthetic and functional prosthesis.
We accepted the case and prescribed the following treatment plan :
