A 64 year old male presented to the author’s practice with hopes of getting rid of his maxillary denture. He had been wearing this denture for approximately 5 years and had been told by other dentists that he had too much bone loss for dental implants in the maxillary arch. Using a variety of dental implants from Noris Medical, the author was able to provide the patient with an immediately loaded fixed prosthetic solution that required no bone grafting. Noris Medical Pteryfit™ implants were bilaterally placed into the pterygomaxillary complex for terminal prosthetic support while a pair of Noris Medical Zygomatic Implants were placed for mid-arch support. Anteriorly, support was achieved with a Noris Medical Tuff implant engaging the Vomer. The mandible was restored in the standard full arch fashion using Noris Medical Tuff implants. This case was immediately loaded and a final restoration was delivered six months after the initial surgery.
Noris Medical Pteryfit™ implants are specifically designed to engage to the pterygomaxillary complex and allow for immediately loading protocols.
Noris Medical Zygomatic implants have a unique design especially suited for extra-sinus surgical approaches. The aggressive rough surfaced end cutting tip and smooth mid-coronal shaft make this implant an ideal fixture for treating cases with severe maxillary bone loss.
The Noris Medical line of dental implants are particularly suited for treatment of cases with severe bone loss. Furthermore, with 0, 17, 30, 45, 52, and 60 degree abutments, Noris Medical has one of the widest selection of prosthetic platforms in the industry.
