Salvaging the Fixed Full-Arch Screw-Retained Prosthesis Using Novel Fixed Attachment System
After Late Implant Failure Alan M. Meltzer, DMD, MScD; and Robert Del Castillo, DMD Despite diligent treatment planning and efforts to mitigate complications, dental implants supporting fixed full-arch restorations occasionally fail. The increased use of a novel fixed attachment system as a cost-effective approach to converting existing dentures to a fixed full-arch provisional prosthesis as well as use in a definitive fixed prosthesis has encouraging implications when clinicians are faced with salvaging full-arch fixed screw-retained restorations after late implant failure.
