The patient presented with a non-restorable lower molar with advanced bone loss due to a vertical fracture.
Initially, the tooth was extracted and the bone was developed with minor bone graft. After a 4 month healing period, digital workflow was used to design the precise position of the replacement dental implant. A customized surgical guide was printed in our digital laboratory. The implant was placed using the surgical guide and allowed to heal for 3 months. The implant was then restored with a custom abutment and restoration to achieve optimal gingival support, function, and aesthetics.
Key factors to our success:
- Proper bone development using guided bone regeneration techniques
- Digital workflow for precise implant planning
- Placement of dental implant with surgical guide
- Customized abutment and restoration for optimal results
