Implant Identification for All on 6?

These implants were probably placed sometime in l999-2001. I am asking for help in identifying them so I can use them in an All-on-6 procedure. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

    I do not know the implant brand.
    However be very carefull in your planning.
    The 2 upper implants are not at the proper crestal level for an All-On-6 if you do the necessary vertical bone reduction to allow restorative space.
    Be aware of the compromises and difficulties if you keep them…

    Rather than tell you my guess, I recommend that you send the x-ray to Attachments International. They will be able to give you a definitive identification and they may have the components that you need. I haven’t used them in a little while, but the contact used to be Darwin.

      The orientation of the implant doesn’t matter, it’s interarch space that matters. Therefore, you will need more interarch space if you’re going with an acrylic to titanium prosthesis vs. a ceramometal prosthesis. Plan the prosthetic design before deciding on bone reduction and implant placement.

    I believe you could add one additional implant between the two existing and three on the right side and do a well balanced and supported fixed prosthesis

    PREAT !! Thank You.

    My pt is wanting to use these two posts. I think adding 4 additional vertical implants should be sufficient for stability and strength in a fixed prosthesis. Does anyone see a better more economical solution?
