Use of a Root-Form Implant as a Dental Pin in a Submerged Canine for Prosthesis Support: A Case Report

Cyril I. Evian, DMD/Thomas L. Caldwell, DMD

PMID: 8181833

A cavity was prepared in a submerged and impacted maxillary canine in the location of a missing lateral incisor. An 8-mm-long Screw-Vent implant was threaded into the site to function as a dental pin via mechanical retention. A Swede-Vent implant was placed in the area of the adjacent central incisor. After a 6-month submerged healing period, the Swede-Vent implant had clinically osseointegrated, and no breakdown of the dental tissue around the Screw-Vent implant was observed. The implants were restored with a two-unit splinted fixed prosthesis. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1993;8:695-698.)

Key words: dental pin, endosseous implants, root-form implants
