Multiple implant placement followed by orthodontic treatment to intrude the over-erupted teeth
A 33-years old female patient presented to the clinic with the desire to replace her missing teeth. The teeth had been removed years ago. The clinical evaluation revealed that the opposing teeth had moved into the gaps. The reduced vertical space made a prosthetic reconstruction impossible.
First the implants were placed by using a surgical guide. After three months, long-term provisional restorations were fabricated and fitted. These provisionals were used as anchorage for the intrusion of the elongated teeth. After completion of the orthodontic treatment (1year and 8 months), the final restorations were fabricated.
