Immediately loaded implants placed with simultaneous sinus lift procedure and cross-arch rehabilitation. A case report after five years
AbstractThe immediate loading treatment concept in implant dentistry seems to be successful in cases of cross-arch stabilization. This report presents the restoration of an edentulous maxilla using an immediately loaded prosthesis supported by six implants with a progressive thread design placed in poor bone qualities. Specifically, two of these implants were inserted simultaneously after a sinus lift elevation and augmentation of the sinus cavity using autogenous bone grafting material. A cross-arch stabilization using a provisional bridge provided immobilization of the implants until healing. The final restoration was delivered 4 months after loading. The case report presents clinical and radiographic evaluation of the immediately loaded implants with an excellent result 5 years after loading.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
