Smile Case Study - Implants (a)
This patient had a long standing history of infection and pain associated with two heavily restored and crowned upper right front teeth. Unfortunately, these two teeth did not respond to treatment and had to be removed.
To replace the damaged teeth and restore our patient’s smile, 3 options were available:
- a removable partial denture
- a fixed bridge
- dental implants
We discussed the options with our patient who indicated that he would be unhappy with a removable denture. The fixed bridge would have entailed “prepping” the adjacent healthy teeth and would have been too destructive of tooth tissue. Because implants are free standing this option offered the patient the ideal permanent solution and a confident smile.
