Tooth Extraction, Bone Graft and Replacement-Melbourne, FL
The patient presented for a second opinion due to her history of recent dental treatment that generated complications. These included infection and bone loss around a recently placed implant, as well as recession of the gums around it and adjacent teeth. With the aid of digital diagnostic tests such as an intra-oral camera, digital x-rays and cone beam ct scan Dr. Patel verified infection and un-restorability of the adjacent tooth. After discussing benefits and alternatives with the patient, Dr. Patel helped with removal of the infected tooth, that would have compromised the longevity of the recently placed implant. The cone beam ct scan revealed bone loss around the implant, but that it could be restored. For the purpose of maintaining space, providing a cosmetic solution and helping the bone graft healing, a transitional partial was provided at the end of surgery for the healing period. The patient was monitored with follow up appointments and in 2-6 months she will be ready to restore her implant.More
