Tilted Implants In Severely Resorbed Lower Jaws

"Everything stays in place.  I can smile and laugh again without worrying.  It gives me a feeling of security and confidence.  It has changed my life!”

We have had great success placing tilted hex top Nobel implants (as in the All-on-4 technique) in severely resorbed mandibles.  The implants are fitted with angled multiunit abutments to hold a tissue bar.  Previously unmanageable lower dentures then derive support and retention by holding to the bar.  Patient satisfaction has been tremendous!
