The OsseoSpeed Profile EV is specifically shaped for efficient use of existing bone in sloped ridge situations. The implant is placed level with both buccal and lingual marginal bone, where the design supports the soft tissue by preserving marginal bone 360 degrees around the implant.
The innovative implant was first introduced in 2011 and is now upgraded with the simplicity and design principles of the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV.
Patient: A 42-year-old male patient with excellent general health, excellent dental and periodontal health and minimally restored dentition presented at our clinic. Due to childhood trauma, tooth 11 was restored with root canal treatment and a crown. Crown and core had fractured due to secondary trauma.
Challenge: Preservation of the buccal bone cortex after tooth extraction to achieve a nice esthetic final restoration without recession of the gingiva.
Treatment: Post and core with crown restoration vs. extraction and an implant supported restoration. The aim of the treatment was a permanent replacement with minimal risk for future intervention and an esthetic restoration with a full ceramic crown.
