Case Study
Introduction: The use of osseointegrated implants in the rehabilitation of partially edentulous patients is, currently, a reality providing greater comfort to patients using removable prostheses, by substituting these ones for fixed prostheses. In cases of oral rehabilitation, the occlusal plane needs to be reestablished in order to favor health, function and esthetics. Objective: The goal of this paper is to report two clinical cases where oral rehabilitation was performed in partially edentulous patients using removable partial dentures (RPDs). Case report: The cases were planned with study models, assembled on semi-adjustable articulator (SAA) and diagnostic wax-up. After that, surgeries were performed for the placement of dental implants and restoration of the remaining teeth. After the osseointegration period, implant-supported fixed partial prostheses were made and installed with adequation of the occlusal plane. The clinical control, at 24 and 36 months of the cases shows the health of the periodontal and peri-implant tissues, stability of the prostheses and patient satisfaction. Conclusion: We may conclude, according to the results obtained, that the substitution of RPDs for dental implants may be successfully performed, with adequate surgical-prosthetic planning and sensible use of occlusion fundaments.
