Résumé


The concept of having only four SHORT ® implants for the support of a fixed full arch non-metallic prosthesis (Trinia™), a CAD/CAM fiber reinforced resin, was first executed in 2010. The clinically based results performed in three different implant dentistry centers are showing clinical success because of Trinia’s inherent mechanical and clinical properties.

Another factor were the 360 degrees of universal abutment positioning provided by the Implants Locking Taper connection (Bicon®), which gives the opportunity to use Trinia™ prosthesis to orient and seat the abutments in the well of the implants. The Trinia framework may be covered with either customized poly-ceramic indirect composite material or by conventional denture teeth and resin. In the following case presentation, we want to show how short implants have been successfully used to restore severely atrophic mandibles without the use of difficult bone augmentation procedures and complicated prosthetic superstructure in the past decade.
