Initial clinical situation
Initial clinical situation shows congenitally missing lateral incisors, deterioration of porcelain bridges and insufficient bone quantity.
Removal of the Maryland Bridge (left).
A connective tissue graft was performed to change the biotype from thin to thick. This was followed by three months of healing. Then a guided bone regeneration with two blocks from the mandible ramus was completed, followed by eight months of healing. Two NobelActive® NP implants were placed (right).
A second connective tissue graft was performed to improve the height of the soft tissue.
Fixed provisional restorations were placed to shape the emergence profile.
Abutments were designed from a diagnostic tooth set-up to create the ideal anatomical shape for optimal veneering.
Try-in of the two NobelProcera® ASC Abutments. The Omnigrip™ Screwdriver with pick-up function securely holds the screw.

On the day of ASC restoration placement, post-operative X-rays show the excellent fit of these screw-retained restorations.
