Complete reconstruction of edentulous mandible and maxilla using the Q-Implant System and applying the two-phase implantation with early loading
The case described presents an unconventional concept for the reconstruction of a patient’s masticatory organ featuring early loading with the Q-Implant implantation system (Trinon Titanium GmbH)
A 70-year-old patient came to the surgery with a completely edentulous mandible and maxilla (Fig. 1). He had lost most of his teeth several years before, and the remaining teeth (45, 43, 33, 32) had been extracted immediately before coming to the implantation appointment. After preliminary diagnostics, two-phase implantation was planned and fixed prosthetic reconstruction with deferred early loading. Before commencing the procedure, complex case analysis was performed. A number of X-ray pictures were taken, along with laboratory tests, casts, and measurements with a dental caliper (Fig. 2 to 3). All these activities allowed a good assessment of the bone. The procedure was planned with the participation of an anesthesiologist, who applied analgosedation intravenously. Analgosedation reduces fear and calms the patient down, ensuring his comfort during the procedure. It is also a method comfortable to the dentist, as it allows for easy and calm work with the possibility of full cooperation from the patient.
