A Simple Way to Restore Completely Edentulous Jaws with Fixed Implant-Retained Dentures
Zafiropoulos, Gregory-George
The prosthetic rehabilitation of full arches with implants requires exact recording of the maxillo-mandibular relationship and bite registration as well as an optimal shape of implant abutments. In this report, we describe the application of a simple method that uses customized implant abutments casted with a non-gold alloy as well as the duplicate of an interem full denture as a mounting guide for the accurate recording of the maxillomandibular relationship and bite registration. This method is independent of the implant system used, and reduces chair time.
