Treatment Options for the Posterior Edentulous Jaw: Implant-Prosthodontic Design in the Posterior Edentulous Maxilla
Mühlemann, Sven
Different design configurations may be possible for implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDps) in the edentulous posterior maxilla. The most appropriate prosthesis design is selected according to the clinical condition. prosthetic planning allows for the selection of the appropriate number of implants and for their appropriate design and dimensions. Certain prosthetic options, such as a shortened dental arch and a cantilever, allow for the use of a reduced number of implants. The selection of reduced-diameter implants and short implants can present a treatment option to avoid bone augmentation procedures in appropriate situations. each implantprosthodontic design has its advantages and disadvantages.
