FAJARDO PUIG, Josefina. Transalveolar implant to replace a pin crown of doubtful prognosis. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2016, vol.53, n.1, pp.104-110. ISSN 0034-7507.

Replacement of missing teeth from the esthetic region poses a complex challenge to dental specialists due to the difficulties involved in reforming natural appearance and papillary anatomy. A clinical case is presented in which a tooth with a pin crown of doubtful prognosis was replaced with an immediate Avanza implant. A 24-year-old female patient presented at the implantology multidisciplinary service of Marianao Prosthetics University Clinic. The patient had a discoloring pin crown in the upper right central incisor that affected her esthetic appearance. Furthermore, the crown constantly fell out and there was slight vestibular swelling, which caused pain. After multidisciplinary evaluation and having obtained the patient’s consent, the pin crown was removed and root 11 extracted by flap technique. An Avanza implant was immediately placed and rehabilitated with a removable acrylic partial denture for esthetic reasons. With this treatment, the patient maintained the soft tissue contour and bone height required to achieve appropriate esthetic results.

Keywords : transalveolar implant; Avanza implant.
