Splinting Natural Teeth to Implants: What Strategies Work?

Last Updated January 09, 2012

Dr. G. asks:
I am a prosthodontist and have done many cases over the years where I have splinted natural teeth to natural teeth and implants to implants. I have never splinted natural teeth to implants. I have encountered a number of cases where this could produce a better prosthetic result if I can be confident that splinting natural teeth to implants can be successful or at least not inherently a practice that would lead to eventual and certain failure. What are your thoughts on this? What has been your experience? What strategies work? I have heard some speakers recommend using a telescope crown on the natural tooth and cementing with resin cement?
