Panthera Dental CAD/CAM SUB Implant™: a new approach (part 2)

Do you have a patient who has a md K1 div. C-h diagnosis and needs implants? Panthera Dental’s CAD/CAM SUB Implant is the answer for patients who have a mandible with a severely vertically atrophied posterior alveolar bone.

Marc Desjardins asks, “K1 div. C-h diagnosis — now what are your options?”

Today there are different treatment plans to consider for md K1 div. C-h diagnosis — a mandible with a severely vertically atrophied posterior alveolar bone.

Some are to be prescribed like short implants. However, forces applied on implants by the long lever arm of the crowns or bridges could cause bone loss around the implants (cantilever effect) and the failure of the treatment. Another option is to extract healthy anterior teeth and to place implants and an implant-supported prosthesis. Although let’s be honest; your patients do not want to extract their last precious healthy teeth. Partial dentures can also be an option, but it will accelerate the atrophy of the bone of the mandible and can cause long-term painful pressures.

Other treatment options are adequate but are sensitive to the technique of the surgeon — e.g., vertical bone augmentation (graft). This technique has also proven itself and allows adequate volume of bone for the placement of implants and the prosthetic restoration. However, it requires a great surgical expertise, two surgeries, two surgical sites, and an additional healing period. What if vertical bone grafting is impossible? What other option could those patients possibly have?

What if a new type of implant could meet all the criteria for predictable success?

Thanks to CT scan technology, the CAD/CAM SUB Implant™ can achieve, in only one surgery, all the goals of a complete and successful rehabilitation: contour, function, comfort, esthetics, phonetics, and health. The power of new technologies took an old concept and brought it back to life totally redefined. The subperiosteal implant is now perfectly adjusted to the bone, and the titanium grants the possibility of osseointegration, minimizing the risk of rejection.1 The shape of the supporting arches is carefully studied and designed from the CT scan impression in Panthera Dental’s proprietary software for an easy insertion that fits perfectly to the bone morphology, optimizing the osseointegration and offering the optimal prosthetic treatment plan to meet the patient’s demands and oral conditions. The CAD/CAM SUB Implant™ is milled from blocks of Ti-6Al-4V titanium, the same alloy commonly used for root-form implants.

All these benefits are achieved in only one surgery, which ultimately improves the patient experience and the simplicity of the process.
