BAEZ-ROSALES, Abelardo et al. Immediate load with definitive prosthesis in the lower jaw: A case report. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 0719-0107.

The aim of this paper is to present a simplified protocol for immediate installation of a definitive prosthesis over four jaw implants. This was performed on a totally edentulous female patient of 72 years. The treatment was initiated with the preparation of a conventional removable prosthesis until the dental articulation test from which a multifunctional guide was obtained. At surgery, four Strong SW (SIN®, Sao Paulo, Brazil) implants were installed between mental foramen. Mini-Abutments were screwed and the impression was made using the guide. On the second day the metal structure was tested with the dental articulation in wax and on the third day the definitive prosthesis was installed with manual torque. The suture was removed 10 days after surgery, and the torque was given to prosthetic screws (10 N/cm). The patient was followed up every 6 months, with no complications so far.
