Issue: Years of untreated periodontal disease, several painful abscesses, and extreme functional wear and chipping of remaining teeth.
Solution: Removal of remaining natural teeth and immediate placement of upper and lower dentures built to her desires of a beautiful, white, restored 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: Multiple failed rounds of restoring natural teeth with crowns and root canals had left Karen frustrated that problems were continually developing.
Solution: After detailed planning and lengthy discussion, she decided removing her natural teeth and replacing them with implant-supported hybrid dentures was her best option. Multiple implants were placed in her upper and lower arches and beautiful, custom prostheses were fabricated to securely attach to those implants. The result was a brilliant smile, a perfect functional bite, and completely secured prostheses that cannot become loose on their own.
Issue: Years of untreated periodontal disease and complications from the loss of multiple teeth left Deb in a situation where her remaining teeth were not restorable. She desired a restored smile and a tooth replacement option that couldn’t fall out on its own.
Solution: We had several discussions covering all treatment options available until Deb felt comfortable with her decisions. Five implants were placed on the upper arch to support and retain a hybrid denture which is completely secured in place and doesn’t cover her palate like a traditional denture. Two implants were placed on the lower arch to retain an implant supported denture. Deb has regained the ability to smile, speak, and chew without the worry of anyone noticing that her beautiful smile isn’t completely natural.
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.
