In the photographs below, a case is shown where Ivoclar Vivadent teeth were used with an upper denture, opposing lower fixed bridge on implants.
In this particular case, the patient presented for a consultation on enhancing her smile. Upon clinical and radiographic examination, we found that she had advanced periodontal disease with severe bone loss. All risks, benefits and alternative treatments were then discussed.
The patient was in good health, however she was a heavy smoker who desired implants. The obvious risks of implant integration with a smoker were discussed with her, however, the patient did wanted dental implant treatment. Because of this, our treatment consisted of full mouth extractions, bone leveling and grafting as well as guided implant placement.
In the upper arch the patient would receive a complete denture and fixed partial denture in the lower arch supported by 7 implants. The pictures below show her drastically improved smile!
