Introduction/Context/Diagnosis

Extraction of #4,20 and restored #2 and 18 first gold crown to maintain vertical dimension. After 4 months of extraction, placed implants on site #3,4,5,19 and 20. Restored the sites with screw-retained single unit implant crowns 3 months after implant placement.

Results/Outcome

The implants restoration successfully restored the chewing function back on patient's mouth and patient reported stable occlusion.

It is very important for dental practitioners to know how to selection criteria for implant candidates, to prudently analyze patient's occlusion and to determine what type of implant restoration design will function best in each case.
