Teeth are hopeless and dentures are not an option. We pulled all her teeth and placed dental implants. All on 6 on the top and all on five on the lower. We maximized the residual bone and we were able to restore it in one day at QDT Dental. A Permanent bridge was placed after 4 months with zirconia crowns. A tooth implant procedure can be simply executed with the right treatment plan.
Getting tooth implants is not always an easy decision. Some patients will question the longevity of tooth crowns vs dental implants. Studies show that dental crowns have a very good prognosis if professional maintenance is performed every 6 months and the patient cleans their teeth at least twice a day. This patient decided to get all on four dental implants and replace the lower missing teeth with single tooth implants. We were able to save the healthy natural teeth by putting tooth caps. Overall the outcome was great. The patient now has a white smile and gained lots of confidence.
This was a very challenging dental implant case. This case is border lined with zygomatic implants, because of the lack of residual bone left. We were able to place 6 best dental implants and immediately restore with a permanent bridge. The patient came back after 6 months and received his permanent zirconia bridge. With these types of cases there is little room for error due to the size of the remaining bone left inside the mouth.
When you neglect your teeth by not brushing, or getting professional cleanings teeth can end up in this condition. Fortunately, this patient had another chance to have his mouth fixed. Patient was a candidate for all on 4 upper and lower same day dental implants. We removed his teeth and immediately delivered dental implants and his teeth all same day.
Nothing is better than your own teeth, but there are scenarios that may prove different. Patient has severe wear on his lower front teeth. He has been like this for many years and was not able to properly chew his food. His chief complaint was: “I want to be able to chew steak like the old days.” At this point he only was concerned with the lower jaw. We recommended to do top and bottom but for him tooth dental implant cost was too high. We place 6 lower dental implants to replace his old tooth crowns. Now he has a permanent zirconia bridge and now he is ready to fix the upper teeth. To fix the upper teeth he will need new front teeth caps and dental tooth implants in the back of his mouth.
