During the second visit, we must extract the teeth (if patient has any) and then place 6 implants and fix the temporary denture. The implant placement, with use of 4% anesthesia is absolutely painless procedure. It takes 30 minutes to complete the implant placement procedure. Right after the placement, a screw retained structure will be used to connect implants and temporary work. With the high precision Penguin RFA device we will check the stability of all placed implants, and if minimum 4 implants show the stability ratio higher than 70, we can proceed with fixing the temporary denture on selected stable implants. If the ratio is lower than 70, the patient gets a temporary denture, with no screw retained structure and no pressure on implants.
Checking occlusion of the upper and lower teeth is of crucial importance for this concept. The morphology of teeth must be suitable, because in the lateral region implants can not bear the horizontal force, and it is also important not to include the last teeth in the occlusion.
This means that in 2-3 days patient will receive screw retained fixed denture which will serve as temporary. The patient can wear this kind of denture minimum 3-6 months, and even longer.
In the third visit which will be appointed in 7 days from the day of implants placement, the patient will come for removal of stitches.
