Rigid Connections Between Natural Teeth and Implants: A Technical Note

Tomas Lindh, DDS/Johan Gunne, DDS, PhD/Sverker Danielsson, CDT


PMID: 9337030

In the posterior partially edentulous jaw, implants may be used to supplement existing natural dentition. Frequently, the maxillary sinuses and the mandibular nerve preclude the fabrication of freestanding implant-retained prostheses. However, if an implant and a natural abutment are combined, a fixed prosthesis can be fabricated, restoring the arch into the premolar area. The histories of three patients with attachments connecting implant-retained ceramotitanium crowns with crowns on natural abutments are described. A design for a rigid custom-made attachment for the Brånemark system, using standard components with a machine-duplication, spark-erosion technique, is suggested.

Key words: combination with natural teeth, dental implants, precision attachment
