Permanent Implant Crowns

This patient presented with many cavities, missing teeth, and broken-off roots. Due to the large extent of dental problems, all teeth were extracted, and bone grafting was placed. Following recovery, CT scans were taken to allow accurate placement of implants. We then restored his implants with crowns and bridges to entirely rebuild his mouth.

Severe Wear

This case is a great example of why a patient should not let grinding and clenching go uncontrolled for a long period of time. This patient presented with severe wear and loss of vertical dimension (his chin is now too close to his nose when his mouth is closed). We restored his entire mouth and re-established his bite with crowns, then protected the new restorations with a night splint.

Gum Disease & Old Crowns

Sometimes a comprehensive treatment involves selective removal of teeth that are not worth the investment of repair. In this patient, we removed several front teeth and replaced them with implants. Then a mixture of crowns and implant bridges were placed to restore function and esthetics.
