Michael Kristensen: Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant in combination with botiss xenografts and Emdogain®

  Straumann® Bone Level Taperted implants have a high primary stability in sites with reduced bone quality or quantity, as in this case with simultaneous sinus lifting, immediate insertion in the extraction socket and a resorbed ridge. botiss xenografts were safely used in the GBR procedures of this case, and Emdogain® may have had a positive effect on healing in terms of less swelling and pain in the initial healing phase. PICTURE DOCUMENTATION Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Fig. 3 Fig. 4 Fig. 5 Fig. 6 Fig. 7 Fig. 8 Fig. 9 Fig. 10 Fig. 11 Fig. 12 Fig. 13 Fig. 14 Fig. 15 Fig. 16 Fig. 17 Fig. 18 Fig. 19 Fig. 20 Fig. 21 Fig. 22 Fig. 23 Fig. 24 Fig. 25 Fig. 26 Fig. 27 Fig. 28 Fig. 29 Fig. 30 Fig. 31 Fig. 32 Fig. 33 Fig. 34 Fig. 35 Fig. 36 Fig. 37 INITIAL SITUATION The patient, a healthy non-smoking 86-year-old female, had lost two previous fixed bridges due to decay. Only implants 21, 22 and 23 remained in the upper jaw together with tooth 11, which had to be extracted due to decay. (Figs. 1 – 3) SURGICAL PROCEDURE The provisional prosthesis was used as a surgical guide (Figs. 4 – 5) to mark the implant positions 13 and 15. A full flap including site 11 was raised. An open sinus lifting procedure (window technique) was performed in region 15, and the sinus mucosa was lifted without perforation (Figs. 6 – 8). Thanks to a remaining bone height of 5 mm, the 10 mm Bone Level Tapered (BLT) Regular CrossFit® (RC) (SLActive®) implant could be placed simultaneously with primary stability. After preparation of the implant site (Fig. 15), a botiss collacone® max was hydrated and split into two pieces (Figs. 9 – 11). The first piece was placed in the sinus (Fig. 12) and the implant inserted (Fig. 13), and the second collacone® piece was placed to cover the implant and the sinus opening (Figs. 14 – 15). In region 13, a 14 mm BLT RC implant was placed (Figs. 34 – 37 and 39). Due to resorption of the buccal bone after the former extraction of tooth 13, on the buccal side 4 mm of the implant was not covered with bone and had to be augmented with a GBR procedure (Figs. 16 – 19). Tooth 11 was extracted with a Benex extraction device so as to preserve as much bone as possible. However, in the apical area there was a fenestration defect due to chronic apical periodontitis (Fig. 20). A 16 mm BLT RC implant was placed with high primary stability (Fig. 21 – 22). The gap between the implant and socket was filled with botiss collacone® max (Fig. 17). The apical fenestration 11 was filled with botiss cerabone®, and the buccal aspect was overcontoured (Fig. 17). The same botiss cerabone® was used to cover the bone defect on implant 13 (Fig. 17). The augmentation was covered with botiss Jason® membranes (Figs. 18 – 19). Finally, Emdogain® was used on top of the membrane (Figs. 23 – 24). The periosteum was cut to obtain primary closure in all sites (Fig. 25). Deep horizontal mattress sutures and interrupted sutures were used to close the flap (Fig. 26). Healing was uneventful with no pain and only minor swelling (Fig. 27). PROSTHETIC PROCEDURE After six months’ healing time, and because of the sinus lifting procedure, a small incision was made on top of the crest to place healing abutments (Fig. 28). After two weeks’ healing time (Fig. 29), the impression copings for closed tray were placed and bite registration was performed on the distal ones. An impression was taken in a closed tray with Flexitime®. Three individual Straumann® CAD titanium abutments were designed in the lab and ordered (Fig. 30). The abutments and a full zirconia 5-unit bridge were delivered and tried in the biscuit phase, and the esthetics and the occlusion were tested and corrected (Figs. 31-33). The bridge was returned to the lab for veneering and finalization and was cemented a few days later. FINAL RESULT A 5-unit bridge was delivered on implants in positions 15, 13 and 11, and a 3-unit bridge was delivered on implant 25 and the existing implant 23 (Figs. 34 – 37). The patient was very happy with the esthetics and the function. The lab work was by Dentolab, Viborg, Denmark. Michael Kristensen D.D.S. Royal Dental College, University of Aarhus, Denmark.
