Patient:
  • 60 year old, Female
Concerns:

 

  • Missing upper front teeth – dislike existing upper partial denture.
  • Wishes for dental crown and bridge or dental implant alternatives.
  • Seeking second opinion on previous advice for extensive bone graft surgery required for dental implant treatment.
Diagnosis:

 

  • Long standing upper front teeth loss with substantial bone resorption (shrinkage).
  • Weakened back teeth with large amalgam (metal) direct fillings and signs of cracked tooth syndrome.
Management:

 

 

  • Smile makeover design with diagnostic mock up.
  • Conventional tooth supported dental bridge in the replacement of missing upper front teeth and fractured upper left second premolar tooth.
  • Patient declined bone graft and dental implant treatment due to high surgical risk and potential compromised success rate given her limited bone volume.
