CASE REPORT: Minimal treatment options with one-piece implants

The aim of this publication is to present case reports to show what is possible with pterygoid implants for the rehabilitation of edentulous space in the jaw (maxilla) while avoiding sinus lifts and bone grafting procedures.

In addition, the added value of one-piece implants for screwed retention is elucidated. One of the major changes seen in the one-piece implant by ROOTT is the special neck design that allows the angulation of the implant to correct the implant axis when it is needed.

This is considered as a major change because it corrects the major disadvantage of the one-piece Implant. 

The one-piece implant offers a unique monobloc design that integrates both implant and superstructure, for a quick, simple one-stage procedure or two stage procedure. 

The one piece or monobloc implant is based on the Schroeder single surgery philosophy. The advantage of the one-piece implant (by ROOTT) is that there is no connection between the implant body and the abutment.

There is no risk of loosening a screw or a screw fracture. There is also no ‘pumping effect’ that may induce bone loss around the implant neck. The monobloc implant (Compressive M by ROOTT) has a tissue level connection instead of a bone level connection. 

This tissue level connection ensures that even if there is a pumping effect it will not induce bone resorption since it is far from the bone level.

The one-piece implant provides a simple treatment sequence at a lower cost and it offers the possibility to treat elderly patients with a minimal invasive implant placement (Flapless implant surgery) technique. 

The following case reports describe procedures where the pterygoid implants and one- piece implants were used to rehabilitate edentulous jaws.
