Abstract

The most common complication of implant ball attachments is loss of retention via structural wear. Hence, parallel placement of implants was identified as a prerequisite for longterm success. In this case, although severe angulation was formed between implants due to severe alveolar bone resorption, parallel ball attachments on the implants could be fabricated using computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture. This procedure can be a solution when implants are placed with angulation and offers additional advantages such as long-term stability.
