Telescopic Crown Over Denture in 1 Visit

Telescopic Crown Over Denture in 1 Visit - The Medit Times - Medit

 

With a full digital workflow, we were able to get a telescopic denture in one visit.

Usually, we need four to five visits to finish a case.

- Bite registration was completed in the first visit, so the lab could articulate the current height.

- Primary and secondary crowns were produced in the same procedure.

- No waxup was needed.

The Medit i700 was used for a patient needing a full arch rehab on implant due to partial edentulism and periodontal damage.

Dr. Antonino Cacioppo did a guided surgery with multiple extractions and positioning of 6 implants.

To finalize the case, he scanned the following using the i700:

- The upper jaw
- The lower jaw with provisional
- The lower jaw without provisional
- The lower jaw with scanbodies on implants
- Buccal bites

Everything was sent to the lab and his team was able to finish the case in a single visit with a full digital office/lab workflow.

The result was a screw-retained, milled zirconia/titanium Toronto Bridge.

Thanks to the accuracy of the intraoral scans, the case was finished without any occlusal retouch.

Digital Denture Conversion Using Existing Denture

By Mohamed Abdel Moniem

Using the conventional method to transform the old fitted denture to a screw-retained prosthesis is highly unpredictable and time-consuming, and can result in short-term solutions that need replacement.

So Dr. Mohamed Abdel Moniem combined digital and conventional workflows to provide accurate, retrievable, easy-to-repair prosthesis at an affordable cost.

"The golden key is starting with the Medit intraoral scanner to scan the edentulous arch, denture in place, and scan body to end up with perfectly aligned scans preserving the existing 3D prosthetic condition."
