Material options for restoring intentionally misaligned implants on maxillary edentulous arch: a clinical report.

Abstract

Without major bone grafting procedures, anatomic challenges may dictate less than ideal implant placement. When surgical correction is impossible, it may be possible to place implants on an angle and use angled abutments to compensate. This article presents 2 patient treatments where angled abutments were used to facilitate the fabrication of an implant-supported fixed complete-arch prosthesis. In both scenarios the supporting bars for the prostheses were milled in titanium. Soft tissue shaded ceramic was used to simulate the soft tissues for one patient and soft tissue shaded composite resin was used for the second. The prostheses were completed by cementing 12 individual crowns on each bar.
