Guided surgery for a fixed edentulous rehabilitation
This healthy patient, who had already experienced implant reconstruction of his lower jaw some 12 years previously, wished to find a fixed alternative to his troublesome removable prosthesis. A good volume of bone and of keratinized tissues remained. The planning was carried out with digital planning software and a surgical guide was created. Multi-unit abutments were selected and the definitive Procera implant bridge was prefabricated prior to surgery. The surgery took place with a great deal of care and meticulous attention to an accurate drilling protocol to ensure precise implant placement.
