Hey All! Was reluctant to post this as its maybe a little non standard as far as implant placement goes. I find that the lower anterior is one of the toughest places for implants. Very dense a vascular thin bone and not a lot of room. This patient lost 24/25 due to perio and I grafted about 5 months prior. Played with Galileos trying to find the best bone. Putting two in were fairly tight, about 2mm apart, so I went with one in the middle rather than one off to the side and having an uneven cantilever.
Used my Moonray D to print. In CEREC make sure that guide platform is fairly big. In milling we can get away with this areas but printing is a little more delicate.
From the converted CEREC scan we did a wax up in Meshmixer. We will spend a lot of time in Meshmixer at the 3D printing course. Printed in Moonray. You may wonder why I used supports, for vacuforming you sometimes need a bigger base if you don’t have a lot of gingival margin around your teeth, just got used to always putting in supports.
Pretty uneventful surgery. Only needed the 2.3. Opted for a flat as I wanted to see the crest and if I needed to reduce bone.
Really loving the Drufromat pressure former! Essay made off the Meshmixer wax up
Come to my course in LA July 28/29 to learn how to use the Moonray as well as 4 other printers:
