Tissue-Integrated Prostheses on Malaligned Implants in a Partially Edentulous Patient: A Clinical Report

Jack H. Koumjian, DDS, MSD/Richard A. Smith, DDS

PMID: 1809678

Whether the result of technical errors or anatomic aberrations, malalignment of osseointegrated implants can create significant difficulty for the restorative dentist who fabricates the final tissue-integrated prosthesis. As a result, the planned prosthesis may defy completion or the implants may have to be left buried. This clinical report illustrates a solution to fabricating a fixed/detachable tissue-integrated prosthesis on malaligned posterior mandibular implants.

Key words: implants, malalignment, partial edentulism
