SYNCRYSTALLIZATION : USE OF INTRA ORAL WELDING TO STABILIZE DENTAL IMPLANTS
Advantages of Intra oral Welding
Intraoral welding is a technique of splinting abutments with welded titanium bars directly in the mouth to provide extra stability.
The procedure eliminates the possibility of errors or distortions during impression-taking, offering long-term success and high predictability.
Rigid splinting seems to play an important role in peri-implant tissue response, since it is able to reduce the stress on implants
quick solution for providing healing stability and good prosthesis retention
can also be used with zygomatic implants. It has been used successfully to rehabilitate the edentulous atrophic maxilla with a permanently fixed prosthesis supported by an intraorally welded titanium framework attached to standard and zygomatic implants on the day as the surgery.
This technique presents new possibilities.
For example, orientation perhaps is less angulation when several implants are splinted this way
Ideal for maintaining the rigidity of provisionals on immediately loaded implants
Acrylic restorations can suffer fractures and luting cement failures. Rigid splinting of multiple implants with intraoral welding technique results in predictable fixation in the early stage of bone healing avoiding the micromovement problem and possible loss of implants.
