Galvanoforming for Large-Span Fixed Restorations in the Treatment of Periodontally Compromised Patients
Haas, Michael / Wimmer, Gernot / Polansky, Raoul
Large-span fixed restorations in the treatment of periodontally compromised patients are technically difficult to realize. Despite existing techniques of regenerative periodontal surgery and implant therapy aimed at preventing large spans by increasing the number of abutments, prosthetic complications do occur. The present article describes a method that introduces galvanic caps to conventional prosthetic technology, which facilitates clinical procedures and reduces complications by improving precision of fit.
