Combined implant and tooth support
Technically, splinting implants to natural teeth can be done and we are asked to do it from time to time. So, it happens! However, finding published studies or literature on this treatment is as challenging as navigating a calcified MB2 on 16.
There is no doubt we will find lots of conflicting opinions; it is an ongoing and hotly debated issue.
This publication shares some good perspectives and situations to do, or not to do. It also suggests some great engineering options that we can surely provide if a treatment like this was accepted by your patient.
We always recommend full disclosure as to potential outcome. Make sure you have your patient review and sign a risk assessment form and document your case ! Not only for your own benefit, but also because we all need more information.
