This patient presents with an abscess on a front tooth, it is not salveagable. It is unaesthetic. But turning this situation around to be healthy, stable and attractive involves a considerable amount of work.
Some failing teeth in a quadrant meant that providing a fixed restoration on teeth was impossible. By using a carefully staged protocol to recover the alveolus, four implants were placed and were adequate to support an eight-unit bridge.
A failing enhanced socket regeneration procedure was re-treated by raising a flap to debride the region more thoroughly. An implant was placed and surrounded by another round of graft material. Hopefully this procedure will provide a better result.
This case shows how a young patient with an almost complete denture was able to be rehabilitated with a large scale maxillary augmentation using bone blocks, dental implants and an all-on-six rehabilitation.
A patient had lost most of the base of her maxilla following the loss of her maxillary teeth. She received large scale bone grafts harvested from the hip to regenerate a ridge which was able to accommodate dental implants. A fixed reconstruction was then able to be provided.
A maxillary anterior three-unit, implant-supported splint was failing with major bone loss in the region. The implants were removed and immediately replaced with a simultaneous large scale bone graft. Following healing, individual restorations were able to be placed.
