Full arch implant cases
Full arch cases do not have to be difficult. Systematic planning to provide a roadmap for treatment is the key.
From the diagnostic stage Omni will design a smile using out CAD software taking into account the current situation biologically and balance the desired aesthetic and functional outcome.
Information gathering is extremely important during these planning stages so be sure to take note of these points before you submit a case
- Facial photo smiling
- Facial Photo Retracted
- Current vertical opening.
- Desired vertical opening. To record this measurement Omni can provide a bite block or if the patient has enough stable remaining teeth place wax in between the teeth and take a bite record at the correct vertical. Take a measurement with the Willis gauge and record.
- Make not of the occlusal relationship of the maxilla and mandible and not any adjustments on display and prominence of the upper anteriors.Provide a surface scan or study models
- Provide a recent CT scans in DICOM format.
From there we will produce a 3D digital diagnostic wax up taking all information into account and start implant planning.
If implant planning is not necessary we will utilise this 3D wax up to create guides for the placement of implants and multi-unit abutments.
