At that annual check-up, Dr. Glauser took the following X-ray.
Two Brånemark System Mk IV implants with the TiUnite surface were placed in positions 45 and 46 in March 2000. This recently taken X-ray shows both implants restored with screw-retained, connected porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and reveals excellent marginal bone levels.
Her Brånemark System treatment had begun much earlier. Back in the early 1990s, the patient had received Brånemark System implants with the traditional machined surface in the upper jaw to replace lost molars on both sides. Then, in March 2000, she became the first patient to receive Brånemark System Mk IV implants with Nobel Biocare’s new TiUnite surface. Two were placed in the lower right jaw to replace a lost premolar and the adjacent molar.
The long-term results speak for themselves.
