Prosthetic Treatment Considerations

  • Stefan Ihde


BOI implants are used almost exclusively to support fixed prosthetic restorations. Occasionally, they are also used for bar attachments. BOI implants combine well with natural abutments and other enossal implant designs. The fundamental question is whether a rigid or an elastic implant-restoration system should be established. How these systems differ and what implications they have in terms of structural integrity will be discussed later in this chapter.
