This study presents the immediate loading technique of a complete maxilla. Once the patient's case study is achieved, a surgical guide is performed with the NobelCinician (Nobel Biocare) software for implant planning.
This software assimilates mucosal and anatomical bone data as well as prosthetics, ensuring optimal implant planning virtually. The output renders a surgical and prosthetic guide and is used to craft the provisional prosthesis before heading to the surgery itself. Thanks to the output and to the prosthetic planning done by the dental surgeon, a guided restoration of the maxilla implant is possible. Crafted at an earlier stage thanks to the output, the provisional prosthesis is immediately installed for 6 months, guaranteeing the bio-integration and the optimal durability of the implants. Every step of the laboratory prosthetic phases are detailed in the article.
