Saj Jivraj: Restorative considerations for the immediate loaded transitional prosthesis
- Review of importance and aspects of sufficient restorative space
- Review of restorative design aspects and considerations
- Design of bone reduction guides for edentulous and dentate situations
- New York 2013 symposium presentation
The lecture highlights the importance of the restorative space to meet the requirements for esthetics, mechanics and biomechanical integrity. Dr Jivraj reviews the restorative considerations playing a role like tooth position, vertical restorative space, restoration contour and emergence design and appropriate tissue contact, in order to avoid common difficulties like food entrapment, cleaning and hygiene challenges or short, unesthetic teeth. Communication between restorative clinician and surgeon is important and can be supported with bone reduction guides, which indicate to the the surgeon where and how much to reduce vertical bone height.
