Yvan Fortin: Maximizing available bone in the edentulous maxilla with tilted and straight implants without restorative compromise
- Advantages of tilted implants
- Placement alternatives for Zygomatic implants
- Restorative solutions on tilted implants without compromise
- New York 2013 symposium presentation
Placement of tilted and/or Zygomatic implants can offer the advantage of low invasive, graftless treatment options. Dr Fortin presents systematic pre-treatment evaluation for these solutions, discusses the benefits of tilted implants and explains placement options and techniques for Zygomatic implants. Dr Fortin reviews the typical restorative solutions for this implant therapy, porcelain to Zirconia/screw retained, hybrid restorations, and removable with flange for additional lip support. Supported by a 10 - 21 year follow up study, Dr Fortin concludes, that maximizing the use of available bone with established procedures is a treatment approach in favor of patient's quality of life.
