RESOLUTION OF SERIOUS JAW ATROPHIES WITH NASAL ANCHORAGE
In the case of partial or total maxillary edentulism, BT RHYNO implants can be used to exploit the maxillary bone surrounding the nose. The relative implant site begins in the alveolar bone (which must be at least 3mm) in the premolar area and ends in the bone between the maxillary sinus and the nasal cavity.
The implants must therefore be long enough to cross the sinus. The BT RHYNO implant is available in lengths 20, 22, 24 and 26 mm. It is also the surgeon’s choice whether or not to add a bone graft based. It is always mandatory to monitor that there are no signs of sinus infection before proceeding with the surgical procedure.
Before the operation, it is recommended to carry out a pre- operative study with radiographic images, CT images and any stereolithographic model of the maxilla. It should be noted that the nasal implant is usually placed in a multi-implant system (for example all on 4) in which the loads are distributed.
