Dr. Christoph T. Sliwowski, Implantology specialist and head of Zahnimplantat-Klinik Düsseldorf, has developed a dental prosthetic system (SOS), that provides the toothless lower jaw with a fixed but removable dental prosthesis. This patented SOS system is unique and beneficial for you: with SOS, ill-fitting and loose prostheses, as well as long and painful treatment periods and high costs are a thing of the past.
The bar-based retention system developed by Dr. Christoph T. Sliwowski enables the surgeon to prepare full dentures, in cases of edentulousmandibles, stabilized on a prefabricated bar fixed on two implants. Theimplants are inserted in a flapless approach with the use of a surgicaltemplate prepared based on CT modelling. Such implantation enablea dentist to immediately fix dentures sparing the trouble related toprolonged time for the preparation of individual fixing components. Atechnical solution that makes the afore-described technique possibleinvolves the use of a set of two matching elements: the bar and its casing.The bar is fixed on the implants, whereas the casing is mounted in thedenture base.
