A custom screw-retained implant-supported prosthesis for a patient with amelogenesis imperfecta: An 8-year clinical follow-up

Published:February 03, 2021DOI:


      This clinical report with an 8-year follow-up describes the multidisciplinary management of a patient diagnosed with amelogenesis imperfecta. The rehabilitation included horizontal-guided bone regeneration, implant placement, use of a fixed interim prosthesis to preview the correction of occlusal disharmonies, and placement of a custom screw-retained definitive implant-supported restoration with a design that was retrievable and minimized maintenance problems.
