Aesthetic is always a key consideration for patients needing anterior teeth. An implant is the first choice of treatment in modern dentistry. Due to bone availability or underlying anatomical structure, implant placement may not always be favorable. With customized digital design and manufacturing using 3D printing DMLS technology, prosthetic management of angulated implants can produce results that are much more accurate, precise, and error-free. This case report will explain a case of a 38 yea

Teeth loss in the maxillary arch leads to progressive bone atrophy, and enlargement of maxillary sinus cavities can significantly increase the difficulty of the replacement of natural teeth with dental implants. It was decided to clarify and evaluate alloplastic grafts (calcium phosphate ceramics – beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP)) after maxillary sinus lifts to see which material retains bone volume better. Interventions included a two-stage sinu
