Luís Senís: An innovative graftless approach for oral rehabilitation in the pterygomaxillary region
- Pterygoid implants
- Nobel Biocare New York Symposium 2016
- Master posterior solutions with a team approach general session
Due to bone resorbtion in atrophic maxillary cases, low bone density and reduced bone height is commonly presented in the posterior region. Different techniques have been used to solve these cases, with or without bone augmentation. The pterygomaxillary region has been found to have high bone density and is therefore considered suitable for implant placement with pterygoid implants. This lecture will guide you through the history and the present scientific knowledge of pterygoid implants. It will also show the PARP concept, a tool to evaluate your case and choose the proper surgical technique in the maxillary posterior region to achieve successful results and discuss the suitable choices of implants and restorative options.
