Mini implants used to stabilize a temporary denture

In this case, mini dental implants (Dentatus Atlas system) are placed along with the permanent dental implants (Nobelbiocare Tapered Groovy system). The mini dental implants are used for the purpose of stabilizing the temporary denture. By using this technique the temporary denture can be modified by removing the palatal aspect as well as decreasing the denture flanges. This modification of the temporary denture is typically performed by the restoring dentist. Some of these aspects were performed at the time of surgery just to get initial stabilization. Guided implant surgery was also used for the placement of the permanent implants. The following slide carousel demonstrates the procedures performed and will be update as more photos are available.
