Abstract

Oral rehabilitation of edentulous maxilla is particularly difficult because of the lack of bone in correspondence of maxillary sinuses, therefore, the surgeon is forced to place implants in sites where bone is more prevalent. In addition, patients require more frequent oral immediate rehabilitation in order to reduce the discomfort related to wearing a total denture. A viable solution to provide stability and retention of the prosthesis in a short time is represented by the technique of intraoral welding supporting total denture or fixed prosthesis. This goal may be achieved thanks to the technique of welding titanium bars onto implant abutments. In fact, the procedure can be performed directly in the mouth, eliminating the possibility of errors or distortions due to prosthetic procedures. This paper describes a case report and the most recent data regarding long-term success and high predictability of intraorally-welded titanium bar in immediate loading implants.
