Implant Dentures-Melbourne FL
The patient presented with pain and cosmetic concern. She was embarrassed about the condition of her teeth, causing her to never smile or let her teeth be seen. She had broken teeth and old restorations. An exam with Dr. Patel and xrays revealed decay and periodontal bone loss. It was recommended to extract all of her remaining teeth and place mini implants for an SDI-Overdenture (denture held in place by implants). Impressions were taken for her dentures and once she approved of their appearance and shade of the teeth, she was scheduled to begin treatment. All of her remaining teeth were extracted and bone grafts were placed, due to insufficient bone to support the implants. While she healed, she chose to have temporary dentures made so she could function normally. She was seen regularly for follow up appointments and 8 months later she was ready for her permanent set. Four mini implants were placed in her lower jaw and attachments were put into the permanent overdenture allowing it to "snap" into place. She again was seen regularly for follow up appointments and said she "couldn't stop smiling".More
