The sintered crowns were personalized with stains and bonded in blocks of three to the opaque frameworks according to the manufacturer's processing instructions, after having previously visualized their surface structures with texture powder for esthetic optimization. 20. After layering and characterizing the soft tissue structures with pink composite, the optical impression of natural single crowns was created as intended and hoped for by the patient. 21. and 22. The finalized superstructures for the upper and lower jaw in situ and in the X-ray control image after their final insertion. Final photos of the visibly relieved patient. Even though the lip and cheek appearance may not meet esthetic ideals, it still reflects the patient's regained individuality and self-confidence.

After many years of suppressing her smile, it still looks a bit tense, but it is the first time she proudly shows her teeth again. Discussion / Summary CAD/CAM-fabricated, screw-retained bridge constructions according to the COMFOUR procedure can meanwhile be considered a clinically evaluated, evidence-based implant prosthetic restoration in the edentulous jaw [1, 4, 5, 6]. CAD/CAM fabrication guarantees a high accuracy of fit here, particularly in the area of the angled screw channels. This, in turn, significantly expands the range of indications for implant-supported rehabilitation, even in cases where augmentation surgery is not indicated or is rejected by the patient. Any necessary repairs and hygiene measures such as PTC can also be performed more easily and thoroughly with partially removable superstructures, which in turn reduces the risk of peri-implantitis. However, the success of an immediate complete implant prosthetic restoration in patients who have a desolate dental status in the upper and lower jaw as a result of marked dental anxiety is strongly influenced by other factors, such as sustained and committed compliance and regular recall to support continued oral health. This requires a participatory therapy decision in advance, based on the professional as well as communicative competence of the entire treatment team. Given a suitable bone structure, a COMFOUR restoration, even with only four implants per jaw, can restore positive self-esteem in such, not so motivated patient who will then have teeth that match his/her personality and with which he/she can “simply live normally again”..
