Replacement of an Upper Right Central Incisor with a Regular Neck Implant, Restored with (1) an All-Ceramic Crown, Transocclusally Screw-Retained, and (2) an Auro-Galvano Crown, Cemented, Seated on CAD/CAM Custom Mesostructures (ZrO2 and Titanium)

Urs C Belser

In February 2005, a 25-year-old female patient, a nonsmoker, was referred to our clinic due to tooth 11 presenting a chronic fistula following unsuccessful root-canal treatment and several attempts at endodontic surgery. The dental history revealed that more than ten years earlier, teeth 11 and 21 had been traumatized during a sports accident. Consequently, 11 had lost its vitality, and there were two moderate fractures of the mesioincisal borders of the two central incisors that had been restored with direct composite restorations. At the time of examination, the composite restorations showed signs of wear, some discoloration, and marginal infiltration. The patient also complained about a moderate discoloration of the clinical crown of the non-vital tooth 11. The patient was in good general health, and her medical history revealed no significant findings.

  • * General SAC assessment modifiers that are also part of the ERA. To avoid redundancy they are listed in this section even if no complete ERA has been made.

  • ** Not applicable to the ERA of immediate placement cases and replaced by "Socket Integrity" listed below under "Surgical SAC Classification". For all other placement types this value is a classification determinant and listed here even if no complete ERA has been made.
