This 55 year old female patient is in good health without any contraindications to treatment and is currently wearing a lower RPD. She wants something more permanent and more stable. She is interested in implants as an option. Her upper arch is natural dentition and her remaining lower anterior teeth are stable.
Please note CT scan:
-Ridge width is marginal, I believe.
-Note thick cortical bone on superior aspect of ridge on lower left side.
-Patient is resistant to bone augmentation due to cost and previous experience on lower left side.
Thoughts on treatment options:
-Conventional implants, splint and/or cantlievers
-MDI locator over denture
-RPD with mini implants
What do you think?
