Esthetic Restoration with Artificial Gingiva in an Atrophied Alveolar Ridge: Clinical Report
Enríquez, Antonio / Sánchez, Eric / Guizar, J. Manuel / del Campo, Carlos Martin / Fandiño, L. Antonio
Management of the anterior maxilla is a challenge in compromised clinical situations such as loss of teeth or soft tissues, alveolar ridge defects, or loss of all three. This report shows the systematic sequence of surgical and prosthetic management in a case of Seibert Class III alveolar atrophy where the patient refused a removable prosthesis. This was resolved with a hybrid metal/porcelain prosthesis with 17-degree multiunit abutments, leading to totally satisfactory esthetic and functional results.
