Computer planned implant-orthognathic rehabilitation: a case of one step surgical procedure with implants insertion, Le Fort I advancement, grafting and immediate loading
AbstractAim In the last decade several systems for computerplanned implantology have been reported. Among them is a system that uses a software and a threedimensional parallelometer able to transfer the implant position from the virtual project to the master model. To verify the potentiality of this system, a single step oral rehabilitation was planned in a patient with edentulous maxilla. Materials and methods A 52 year old male patient was referred to the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthopedic Institute Galeazzi, Milan (Italy), in January 2008. He was almost completely edentulous in the maxilla. A CT scan and a computer planning were performed. The one step oral rehabilitation consisted of a single operation composed by a Le Fort I osteotomy, flapless implant insertion, provisional full arch screwing, maxillary advancement and fixation, gaps grafting. Results After 8 months follow-up no implant was lost and clinical and radiological controls demonstrated the stability of the surgical procedure. Conclusion Computer-planned and cast model transferred implantology is a helpful technology not only for planning prosthodontic rehabilitation but also for implant-orthognathic surgery.
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.
