A 36-year-old patient turned to the clinic with the complaints of absence of teeth and impaired chewing function.
Diagnosis: root caries of 15, 23, 38, 48, 31, 32, 41 and 42 teeth. Adentia of 12, 14, 16, 22, 25, 36, 37, 46 and 47 teeth (Photos 1 and 2).
Plan of treatment: Extraction of roots of 15, 23, 38, 48, 31, 32, 41 and 42 teeth with placement of Alpha Deny Implants in the area of 12, 14, 16, 22, 25, 36, 37, 46 and 47 teeth.

A temporary removable dental prosthesis was made at the stage of preparation for the operation (Photo 3).

Course of operation: 

Removal of 15, 23, 31, 32, 38, 41, 42, 48 teeth and curettage of alveolar sockets were performed under infiltration anesthesia. The mucous membrane was cut along the alveolar crest in the area of 16, 14, 12, 22, 25, 36, 37, 46 and 47 teeth. Exfoliation of periosteal mucosal graft. Formation of bone bed. Placement of Alpha Dent Implants in the area of 12, 14, 16, 22, 25, 36, 37, 46 and 47 teeth (Photo 5). The implants are covered with screw-type plug. Suture of mucous membrane. Adjustment of temporary removable dental prosthesis. Administrations: antibiotic therapy, removal of stitches in seven days.

The doctors set to orthopedic part of treatment in six months.
Opening of implants and placement of the gingiva formers were followed by correction and insertion of immediate prosthesis being already available. The individual abutments were made (Photos 6 and 7). The imprints were taken with individual spoons (Photos 8 and 9). Then removable orthopedic construction was replaced by fixed one – temporary plastic bridge prosthesis was made (Photos 11, 12 and 13).

This was done in order to eliminate gingival reduction around the implants as well as to determine the real height of bite, horizontal line of cutting edge, location of central incisor midline and their compliance with the implants. Then the metal-ceramic bridge prostheses were made (Photo 14).


There was complete and total rehabilitation attained with insertion of maxillary and mandibular metal-ceramic bridge prostheses. The chewing and aesthetic functions were restored (Photo 15).
