Patient: 42 years old male
슬라이드1
Panoramic view at first visit. #25, #26, & #27 teeth were missing. 4-8mm residual bone heights were observed.

1) #25: Class II CMI Fixation
2) #26: Class III CM Fixation (with crestal bone graft)
3) #27: Class II or Class III Fixation Prostheses: Implant supported 3-unit FPD on the implants

After serial drilling with twist drills, S-reamers (Ø2.4mm S-reamer for #25 for Class II fixation, Ø3.6mm for #26 for Class III fixation, and Ø3.2mm for #27 for Class II fixation) were used with at least 1200 rpm, starting by drilling 1mm less than the depth to the sinus floor, then continuing up to the opening of the inferior wall of the sinus.

A periapical view after placing EB type CMI implant (4.0X11.5). The apex of the implant was placed 1-2mm into the sinus without bone graft (Class II CMI fixation) at #25 area. Bone density was D332 with 40 Ncm, which may be the result of obtaining Class II fixation.

슬라이드5
At #26 area, the available bone height was 3-4mm. The micro-elevators of the SLA kit were used to elevate the maxillary sinus membrane through the crestal hole. This procedure can be done in case of limited bone height (1-3mm).

슬라이드7
0.3cc of alloplastic bone graft material (Calpore) was inserted below the elevated Schneiderian membrane to fill about 5mm at the #26 area.

슬라이드8
Two EB type CMI implants (5.0X8.5) were placed at the #26 and #27 areas. Insertion torques were 40 and 30 Ncm at #26 and #27 respectively. That amount of insertion torque might result from a combination of inferior cortical fixation and self-compaction technique.

슬라이드9
Healing abutments were connected because of sufficient initial stabilities. Interrupted suture was performed with adequate attached gingiva.

슬라이드10
Panoramic view right after surgery. About 7mm height of grafting material at the #26 fixture was observed as dome-shaped radiopaque mass. It was possible to obtain extensive elevation with the micro-elevator.

슬라이드11
One month after implant placement surgery. Good soft tissue healing was seen. Impression was made at that time.

슬라이드12
A temporary cemented crown of #24 was removed. SCRP abutments were connected at #25, #26, and #27 one week after the impression.

슬라이드13
A definitive SCR 3-unit PFM FPD (SCRP) was completed within 40 days after the surgery by cementing it on the abutments with a permanent resin cement. This prosthesis is retrievable through the screw holes.

슬라이드14
Buccal view of the prosthesis after final cementation.

슬라이드15
Frontal view of the prosthesis.

슬라이드16
Panoramic view at the delivery of the prosthesis.
Marginal bone and elevated bone graft material seemed stable.


슬라이드17
Periapical radiograph at the delivery of the prosthesis.
No cement remnant was observed due to SCRP type prosthesis which can be removed and polished separately. Good marginal fit between abutments and FPD is observed.


슬라이드19
A periapical view of 3 year follow-up. No specific difference was seen.

슬라이드20
Panoramic view of 6 year follow-up.

슬라이드21
A periapical view of 6 year follow-up. Peri-implant bone level is well maintained.

슬라이드22
Occlusal view of the SCRP: 6 year follow-up.

슬라이드23
CT images of #25, #26 and #27 implants at 6 year follow-up.
Marginal bone levels were well maintained while 0.5mm of apices came out from the bone due to re-pneumatization, but were covered by the membrane. This may be a kind of bone remodeling phenomenon, explaining why no more bone is needed in the apex for occlusal support.
