An implant-supported removable partial denture on milled bars to compromise the inadequate treatment plan: a clinical report.

Kim JH, Lee JH - J Adv Prosthodont (2010)

Bottom Line: Inadequate treatment plan, due to insufficient discussion between prosthodontist, and surgeon, may result in poor prognosis.It was found that the patient had two hopeless teeth, and a severely resorbed alveolar ridge.Implant-supported removable prosthesis on milled bars may be a useful treatment option in patients with incorrect angled placement on severely resorbed alveolar ridge.

ABSTRACT
Presurgical prosthetic treatment planning is critical for the success of the implant prosthesis. Inadequate treatment plan, due to insufficient discussion between prosthodontist, and surgeon, may result in poor prognosis. A 26-year-old male patient was referred for prosthodontic treatment after implant was placed in the area of teeth #17, 16, 22, 25 and 27, without adequate discussion nor the treatment planning between oral surgeon and prosthodontist. It was found that the patient had two hopeless teeth, and a severely resorbed alveolar ridge. Additional tooth extraction was needed and the type of definitive prosthesis was shifted from fixed type to removable one. Proper pre-surgical treatment planning is essential for the good prognosis. Implant-supported removable prosthesis on milled bars may be a useful treatment option in patients with incorrect angled placement on severely resorbed alveolar ridge.

Figure 4: Magnets were embedded in the denture.

Mentions: A customized abutment and a crown for tooth number #22 were fabricated on the articulator and delivered to the patient. The milled bar was fabricated accounting available interocclusal space, as measured from the vinyl index on mounted casts of provisional denture. A two-degree tapered milled bar wax pattern was fabricated on the master cast and magnet keepers were embedded in the pattern, which was then invested and casted (Figs. 2-4).
