Implant Bridges 2.0
A 72 year patient complained of mobility in his lower teeth and unstable pontic bridges shown in (fig. 1)
After consultation and a discussion of the options with his dentist, planning was made for an implant supported bridge on the lower jaw. The upper jaw was to have a removable full upper denture.
All unstable and infected teeth were removed in preparation for the implants. Four Ankylos implants were placed in tooth positions #34, 35, 43, and 45 with Syncone 5 degree abutments to support and retain the bridge (fig. 2). The final cemented bridge is shown in the panoramic x-ray (fig. 3)
The before and after photos (fig 4 and 5) show the results of the treatment of both the full upper denture and the implant supported bridge.
tanium implant with special expansion thread and self-locking cone as abutment connection was developed by Prof. Dr. med. dent. Nentwig and Dr. Ing. Moser 30 years ago and brought to clinical maturity. High primary stability, minimum construction height, a micro-movement-free and bacteria-proof implant-abutment connection as well as a deep platform switching soon proved to be a superior combination in terms of achievable bone and soft-tissue stability, thereby ensuring exceptional long-term success.
With the myplant two implant system, Prof. Nentwig and Dr. Moser have further advanced and optimised this concept, which has been documented over decades, and adapted it to the criteria of modern, future-oriented implant therapy.
The key advantages of the myplant two® implants are:
