Immediate rehabilitation of severely atrophic maxilla using trans-sinus nasal protocol and extended-length subcrestal angulated implants. Case series with one-year follow-up.

J Oral Implantol 2021 Jun 5. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Aria Dental Specialist Implant Centre Prosthodontist Prosthodontics 1002 Hay street Perth 6000 AUSTRALIA Perth western australia 6000 Aria Dental Specialist Implant Centre.

Immediate fixed full arch rehabilitation of the severely atrophic maxilla eliminates the use of a tissue supported prosthesis during the healing phase and maximises patient comfort and quality of life.

The surgical treatment options available for immediate rehabilitation of the severely atrophic maxilla are dependent on the location and availability of the residual alveolar ridge. When bone is only available in the inter canine region, a graftless approach using tilted distal implants may not provide adequate distance between implants for favourable biomechanics. Read More
