A COMPLETE CASE OF PET with 3D control at 9 months
Case already published over a year ago until the provisional stage. At 4 months, finalization with digital workflow. I don't usually do the cone-beam to check the position of the implants, however in the spring of this year, due to another problem encountered in another quadrant, I'm forced to perform a tac, which gives me the opportunity to verify the maintenance of the buccal plate also in zone 11, where I had performed the Socket-shield. In the comparison between the two tacs, it is surprising to verify the perfect maintenance of the volumes, with transversal measurements that are almost overlapping. 8.57 vs 8.58. In short, perfectly maintained transverse diameters, as well as perfect maintenance of the volumes relative to the soft tissues and the keratinized band. The color is not perfect, on the other hand it does not represent the sense of the post, but the patient, 83 years old, mirror in hand, candidly told me "is perfect doctor, equal to the canine, do not let me do other sessions!". Another consideration on the implant position. It is excessively vestibular, without this having in any way precluded the final result. This and other cases are the reason for which I ALWAYS use the guided surgery, to have the maximum control of the fixture position, both in relation to the absolute position in the transversal volumes, and in relation to the relationship between implant and vestibular shield. The promise of the technique, namely the maintenance of the volumes of hard and soft tissues, is perfectly maintained. The procedure is young, but very promising, now supported by almost 10 years of literature, and the results obtained so far (personally some fifty cases) are really encouraging.
