The Use of Implant-Supported Ceramometal Titanium Prostheses Following Sinus Lift and Augmentation Procedures: A Clinical Report

Christine Knabe, Dr, Bodo Hoffmeister, Prof Dr, Dr

PMID: 9509787

This clinical report presents rationale and clinical procedures involved in the use of ceramometal implant-supported titanium-cast prostheses for the rehabilitation of patients with atrophic maxillae requiring iliac crest grafting procedures. Favorable clinical results have been obtained, although clinical observation periods have been limited. The present observations suggest that osseointegrated ceramometal titanium prostheses could form a valuable part of restorative therapy following augmentation procedures. Furthermore, these titanium prostheses may be a meaningful contribution to implant prosthodontics, facilitating restorations of optimum biocompatibility.
