The image below is that of an 82 year white female retiree who came to our office for routine hygiene. One day she was questioning if the possibility existed to eliminate the upper removeable prosthesis, which she had grown tired of wearing without replacing all of the full coverage crowns and bridges in her mouth.
The images below are of the same patient without the upper removeable partial denture in place. The patient is missing 4 teeth in the anterior segment of her mouth and the space is not amenable to restoration with a fixed bridge prosthesis because of the size of the span.
We elected to place implants in the anterior region and restore them to replace the front teeth. The image below is of the implants in place after surgery.
The images below are of the completed case. The space due to missing teeth in the posterior segment as well as the neighboring teeth were reconstructed and bridged together with fixed dental prosthetics.
The images below are of the completed case.
If you would like to discuss this case or any other presented in our blog, please feel free to contact us as East Boynton Dental.
