All-on-4® treatment concept high skilled with NobelParallel™ CC TiUltra™ implant and Multi-unit Abutment Xeal™
Dr. Ana Ferro
“In this case, the patient had an extremely atrophic maxilla, with very thin bone in the second quadrant. I decided to choose NobelParallel CC TiUltra implant and Multi-unit Abutment Xeal because of the dehiscence I would have in the posterior tilted implant and the required capacities for an excellent osseointegration and Mucointegration™ process. During implant placement, the hydrophilic capacities of the TiUltra surface and the immediate interaction with the blood were clearly visible. After 10 days, the tissues presented extremely good healing and at 1-year follow-up they look very healthy."
Patient: 53-year-old female

Initial clinical situation
Smile picture - very important to determine if there is a need for bone reduction. In this particular case, the patient shows 1 mm of gum when smiling, which will indicate a need of bone reduction of 3 mm (left).

DTX™ Studio Implant planning of an All-on-4® High Skilled case with the NobelParallel CC TiUltra RP 4.3x13 mm in the posterior and NP 3.75x13 and NP 3.75x11.5 mm in the anterior.
The surgery starts with extraction of the remnant teeth.
Raising a full-thickness flap with two releasing incisions in the area of the first molars exposing the nasal fossa and the anterior walls of the sinus.
Bone reduction: performed due to a high smile line of 1 mm and the thin crest.
The All-on-4® Guide is placed in the midline and the anterior wall of the sinus is evaluated.
Preparation of osteotomies following the under-preparation protocol. Drilling is performed according to bone density in order to achieve good primary stability.
