Case Presentation: Implant-Supported Fixed Mandibular Prostheses
This chapter will present a clinical case describing the treatment of a lower edentulous patient with an implant-supported fixed prosthesis. The surgical strategies underlining the placement and the distribution of the dental implants will be highlighted and discussed, as well as the concepts that underscore the design of the final prosthetic outcome.
The various clinical and laboratory steps starting from the planning to the completion of the prostheses will be presented. This includes the use of cone beam computer tomography in the planning process to prepare and plan for implant placement, the various impression technics, as well as the computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) of the titanium bar.
