Treatment planning was to replace tooth 16 with a Neobiotech implant after removing old partial fixed FMC. About 5mm of available basal bone height was measured on site 16.
A Neobiotech short implant ( IS II Active 4.5 x 7.3 mm) was positioned submerged in conjunction with sinus membrane elevation by the crestal approach (SCA Technique).
After 6 months of undisturbed healing, the implant was uncovered and the impression was taken. A screw-retained provisional crown was delivered.

After 12 months of the surgery, it was shown than peri-implant soft tissues are well stabilized and in good health. An easy impression was able to be taken with a short transfer and a snap-on precise system called 'PickCap impression system'.
A definitive screw-type metal-ceramic crown was delivered.
Note the good corticalization of the sinus bone floor and the cervical bone stability.
