The Screwless Fixed Restorative System: A Laboratory Perspective
October 11, 2018
A fixed implant attachment system can secure a patient's prosthesis in a fixed manner that may only be removed by the clinician.
These fabricated bridges deliver a strong, esthetic, and cost-effective final restoration at the time of extraction of hopeless teeth and insertion of dental implants.
Clinicians can see a signficant decrease in the amount of time it takes to deliver a bridge with these abutments because there are no screws to contend with or occlusal holes to repair.
Thomas Peterson, MDT, CDT, presents a case demonstrating how his laboratory fabricates a metal-reinforced acrylic resin prosthesis, intended as the definitive restoration, supported and retained by a screwless fixed restorative system.
This eBook presents each step of this case beginning with the implant-level impression to the wax setup, fabrication, delivery and finally to the final restoration. The result is a strong, esthetic, and cost-effective final restoration at the time of extraction of hopeless teeth and insertion of dental implants.
