I lost my front teeth
This patient was referred to our office as a result of her failing maxillary (upper) front teeth. She presented with significant aesthetic concerns due to the bone and tissue loss around her front teeth. She was very anxious and nervous about the possibility of losing her front teeth. She did not want to have a prosthesis that was removable from her mouth. We were able to meet with her several times to help identify all the factors involved in her case that needed to be addressed to best be able to provide her with a fixed, stable, aesthetic, and predictable restorative solution. Proper planning is the key to success in any case like this. Dental implants were the key to this patient’s treatment. Dental implants work well when they are planned properly. We worked closely with a local Oral Surgeon (Dr. Eric Nelson) to help ensure our dental implant prosthetic plan could be properly supported in her bone. She required the removal of the two failing teeth and subsequent bone grafting (augmentation). This process allowed the patient to receive two dental implants. Once the dental implants healed, we were able to provide her with predictable, functional, and aesthetic tooth replacement solution. She was very pleased with the outcome and the process.
