The Use of Osseointegrated Implants in Long-Span Fixed Partial Prosthesis: A Case Report

Edwin L.C. Scher, BDS (Lond), LDS, RCS Eng

PMID: 1813403

The use of osseointegrated dental implants has now become an accepted form of dental treatment. An osseointegrated implant can be used to give the prosthodontist that extra support needed to make a doubtful prognosis more predictable. In this clinical situation, the abutment teeth on either side of a four-tooth gap were not considered strong enough to support a six-unit superstructure. Two osseointegrated Core-Vent implants were successfully used to provide the necessary support. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1991;6:351-353.)

Key words: Core-Vent implant, dental implants, fixed partial prostheses, osseointegration
