Single, tuberosity-osseointegrated implant support for a tissue-integrated prosthesis
Fixed prosthodontic rehabilitation can be accomplished in partially edentulous patients whose maxillary antrum prohibits successful placement of multiple fixtures. A single posterior fixture is placed in the tuberosity region to support a tissue-integrated prosthesis directly connected to a periodontally sound anterior abutment tooth. The treatment planning considerations and surgical aspects are described, and a case report is used to illustrate the technique.
