Fred

Case Study: Implants and Crowns

Diagnosis:

Fred’s four front teeth were found to be hopeless and had to be removed. In addition to his canine teeth needing full coverage crowns, he was also missing a tooth adjacent to his left canine.

Solution:

Five dental implants and two crowns

PROCESS

To facilitate a state-of-the-art surgical procedure for the placement of Fred’s dental implants, we first generated a 3-D model of his mouth by utilizing a computer CT-Scan. This first step was critical for the precise placement and position of the teeth and implants.

Next, working from Fred’s 3-D model, we employed computer technology once again to make the supporting structures known as implant abutments. A highly-skilled ‘ceramist’ then adds porcelain (tooth-like material) on top of the abutments.

After the porcelain is “fired” in an oven the four new teeth implants were test-fitted in Fred’s mouth. At the same time, two full crowns, one to the left and one to the right of the four implants, were also test-fitted. Last, comes all restorations at the try-in stage.

Here is a series of views showing Fred’s final, beautiful, and very happy smile.
