From Removable to Fixed: Transitioning Patients from an Implant Bar Overdenture to a Screw-Retained Hybrid Denture

Volume 6, Issue 4

The flexibility of implant therapy has increased dramatically over the years, particularly for fully edentulous patients, who today have several treatment alternatives that are vastly superior to the traditional complete dentures that were the sole restorative option only decades ago. Clinicians can now offer edentulous patients the safe, predictable placement of implants in order to […]

Screw-Retained BioTemps® Bridge

Volume 6, Issue 3

In the presence of sufficient implant stability, temporization affords a wide array of benefits. In addition to providing the patient with a lifelike prosthesis while the implant osseointegrates and the soft tissue heals, temporaries help establish an ideal emergence profile and esthetic gingival contours and margins for the planned restoration. Provisionalization also gives the patient […]

Inclusive® TRS Screw-Retained Hybrid Denture

Volume 4, Issue 1

Implant-retained overdentures present patients with significant advantages over traditional dentures, providing superior retention for improved function, eliminating the need for denture adhesives, and serving to slow or prevent bone resorption in the edentulous arch. Unfortunately, the complexity of conventional methods can make such treatment options unpredictable for the prescribing clinician and expensive for the patient, […]

Creating a Screw-Retained Temporary

Volume 3, Issue 2

A temporary restoration provides a prosthetic prototype that helps not only to sculpt the soft tissue contours, but also to simplify the seating of future components. Think of it as a practice builder: it satisfies the patient because they get their tooth back more quickly, and clinicians are better able to manage patient expectations for […]
