Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article describes a newly designed surgical template that was used to facilitate dental implant placement. The implants were planned to function by loading them immediately. A case report describing the device and the benefits of its use for a patient with an edentulous mandible is presented. Four implants were placed in the anterior region of the mandible to support an immediately fixed prosthesis. Clinical and radiographic analyses were conducted postoperatively to evaluate bone loss and peri-implant soft-tissue healing. The salutary results demonstrated the positive value of this therapeutic approach and presented the advantages of shorter treatment times, fewer patient visits, lower costs, and elimination of secondary surgical procedures.
