Full Mouth Reconstruction
A 78-year-old male patient presented with a significant slant in his lower natural dentition and maxillary denture.
Due to bone loss under the maxillary denture, a supporting structure replacing missing bone and gingiva was created to properly position the crowns. The restorations for these teeth were fabricated in our laboratory. The supporting structure is screwed into the patient's implants. Individual crowns are then cemented onto the structure. The crowns can easily be removed to remove the supporting structure if necessary. This facilitates maintenance of the implants and any necessary repair of the prosthesis.
At the completion of his treatment, the upper crowns replace his complete denture while the lower crowns cover his existing lower teeth. The patient has been restored with a natural appearance and proper facial support.
