Online Article: Temporary Single Palatal Implant for Denture Stabilization During Augmentation and Implant Procedure: A Case Report
Stimmelmayr, Michael / Edelhoff, Daniel / Schweiger, Josef / Güth, Jan-Frederik
This case report introduces a temporary denture with reduced extension stabilized in the edentulous maxilla as a possible treatment method for patients with a severe gag reflex, allowing them to test the function, esthetics, and tolerance of the denture prior to hard tissue augmentation and implant placement. A 4-mm implant was placed in the central anterior palate and allowed to heal for 3 months. During the complete treatment period, a denture with reduced extension can be delivered on a fixed Locator abutment. This method was successfully applied in three patients, and the palatal implant remained stable until the final removable prosthesis could be delivered.
