Case Study: Dental Implant – Anterior
Robert M. Bentz, DMD, FACP
Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization of a Single Anterior Tooth
|A traumatic injury fractured the patient’s crowned left central maxillary incisor at the gum line.||A radiograph of the damaged tooth showed that the tooth root was also fractured, with stress cracks traversing down along it.|
|Immediately after extraction of the incisor, a NobelReplace Select Tapered Groovy Implant was placed and tightened to at least 45 Ncm, exhibiting excellent primary stability.||NobelProcera zirconia abutment and all-ceramic crown, 1 month after placement. Excellent healing of the soft tissue around the abutment demonstrated the biocompatibility of the zirconia.|
Case Study: Dental Implant – Posterior
Peter K. Moy, DMD
NobelReplace, Snappy Abutment, and NobelProcera Crown Zirconia in the Posterior
|Presurgical radiograph. A surgical template was created to guide the placement of a NobelReplace implant. A transmucosal healing abutment was placed immediately. A||Removal of the healing abutment revealed 2 mm of tissue above the implant with a flat tissue architecture, which is an ideal indication for the Snappy Abutment.|
|1-mm tall Snappy Abutment was seated on the implant, and the screw was engaged to a torque of 35 Ncm. The radiograph confirmed proper seating.||Using an off-the-shelf abutment replica, the laboratory fabricated a definitive NobelProcera Crown Zirconia, which was secured with resin-reinforced glass-ionomer cement.|
