Full mouth implant reconstruction is a complex rehabilitation process. Well distribution of implants in each arch and availability of adequate bone is the prime demand for successful treatment. Biological and technical complications are often associated with the prosthesis. The irretrievability to repair and maintenance becomes a challenge for the clinician.
Here, a case with a debilitated dentition which was reconstructed with an implant supported segmented prosthesis is described. Eight along with six implants were placed in maxilla and mandible respectively. Full arch segmented screw retained prosthesis is advantageous over cemented prosthesis for ease of repair and detachment. Further, it can easily correct angulations issues in maxilla for prosthesis fabrication.
