Abstract

Optimizing aesthetics in the anterior maxilla can be a challenge because of tissue contouring problems. Dental implants allow for restoration of edentulous areas, thus improving function. Some compromises may result as a result of the necessity of predicting the stability of the replacement restorations. The Frialit-2 dental implant system with the internal hex design provides excellent stability for single-tooth restorations. Aesthetics are maximized using Procera Allceram crowns. This case study describes in detail the following: diagnosing and treatment planning for a challenging trauma case; surgical preparation and placement of two Frialit-2 dental implants in the maxillary left central and lateral incisor areas; primary impression techniques and fabrication of a temporary prosthesis over ProTect abutments; second-phase opening; final impressions; and fabrication of two single crowns.
