Issue – Advanced periodontal disease had caused infections and bone loss which left the natural teeth unrestorable.

Solution – All the natural teeth were removed to allow healing from the infections present.  A set of upper and lower dentures were made to restore form, function, and esthetics while preparations are made for future implants.

Issue: Severe decay left the majority of her remaining teeth non-restorable.

Solution: The most economical route to taking care of the painful, decayed teeth was to remove them and fabricate upper and lower dentures.  Custom dentures were fabricated to restore proper function and the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile.

Issue: Periodontal disease had created improper length appearance of front teeth, decay around existing crowns, mismatched shades between crowns and natural teeth.

Solution: The upper teeth were removed to resolve the infection that was present and an upper denture was created to restore an esthetic, natural smile and comfortable chewing ability.

Issue: The progressive loss of his back teeth had created an inability to chew effectively and enjoy the types of food he wanted to confidently eat.

Solution: Placement of two implants on his lower left and one on his lower right followed by the creation of a Removable Partial Denture (RPD) that securely snaps onto locators attached to the implants.  The secure attachment to the implants prevents any tipping or dislodging of the denture, allows the denture design to be without any visible clasps around remaining teeth, but also allows easy removal and cleaning of the prosthesis.

Issue: Several missing teeth, gum disease, and multiple infected teeth meant the option of restoring the remaining natural teeth with a good long term prognosis was not possible.

Solution: Complete upper and lower dentures were made and placed the same day the remaining teeth were removed. Natural color and tooth size immediately restored a pleasing smile and recreated the ability to effectively chew.  After several months of healing, two implants were placed in the lower jaw to help further secure the lower denture.

Issue: Multiple missing teeth and visible cavities in her front teeth had created a situation in which she was unable to easily chew food as well as resistant to smiling.

Solution: She decided that an upper denture with bright white and straight teeth was her desire.  Fillings were placed to restore the decay in the lower front teeth and removable partial dentures were made to replace the missing lower back teeth.

Issue: Patient had lost her upper back teeth over the years and desired a cost effective way to replace the missing teeth and increase her chewing ability.

Solution: An implant was placed on each side of her upper jaw and an RPD (removable partial denture) was made to attach to the implants.  The implants secure the RPD to the upper arch, preventing the need for visible metal clasps to hold the RPD in place.  This was a more cost effective approach that placing several implants on each side and a more esthetic and secure approach than making a traditional RPD that gains its retention by visible metal clasps around the teeth.
