The Use of Two Implant Systems Within the Same Restorative Segment: A Clinical Report
Lecocq, Kenneth R. / Koehler, Geraldine K. / Black, William B.
The incorporation of more than one dental implant system within the same restorative segment may be a reliable approach to treatment. This article describes a clinical situation that was resolved, after the failure of a pre-existing subperiosteal implant, by the use of both subperiosteal and osseointegrated fixtures concurrently. The result was an increase in stability, and it is hoped that restoration settling will be minimized.
