This patient had worn a “flipper,” a removable partial denture, for many years. He was interested in a non-removable solution.
By Glenn Wolfinger, DMD, FACP placed a single Camlog® implant using a pilot guide then delivered of temporary fixed crown.
A full-contour screw retained Zirconia crown on a TiBase abutment.
Restorations and pilot guide were made Stephen Balshi, MBE, CM Prosthetics, Fort Washington, PA. Nancy Gausz (Pi Dental Center In-House Ceramics Lab) created a custom chairside shade, stained and glazed the tooth to match the shade of the patient’s existing natural teeth and restorations.
