Before And After Photos

This female patient has been wearing a very long standing denture. She complained that there was always saliva in the corner of her mouth.  On presentation she showed gingivial hyperplasia when the gum becomes sore and overgrown because of an ill-fitting denture. We corrected the gingival hyperplasia with multiple soft tissue until most of it healed well. There was too much height in her lower face and we corrected this which changed the manly look in her before photos to a very feminine look in the after photographs.

We also placed two implants in the lower ridge for an implant retained denture. The patient had Parkinson and was having difficulty controlling her very loose lower dentures and the implant retained dentures made a huge improvement. The patient was very pleased.

The patient presented with a fifty year old denture which was very loose denture. The patient has been self realigning for about six or seven years. There was very little bone tissue left but we place two implants very close to each other on the lower and we made him an implant retained denture and a conventional upper denture. The patient was very happy with the result.

This young patient presented with a missing central incisor and the upper left lateral incisor.  Initially we did a wax up and mock up in the mouth. We took a CT scan using a radiographic stent and it was deemed that the UR2 had a poor prognosis. We extracted the UR2 and placed an immediate denture. Further on from that Stage 1 surgery for implant placement, Stage 2 healing abutments were placed, Stage 3 impressions taken for the definitive implant retained bridge which was a screw retained zironcium bridge because of the aesthetic demand of the patient. Patient was very happy with result.

This patient presented with over retained primary lateral incisors which looked unsightly because of small size. These two teeth were extracted and we provided the patient with immediate dentures and placed two implants and restored the teeth with screw retained crowns and the patient was very happy with the result.

This female patient presented with missing upper canines and she was wearing a removable denture which the patient was not very happy with the aesthetics or the fact that it was a removable denture. The patient wanted to have implants but there was insufficient space between the two roots of the two teeth (at least 7mm which was insufficient) so restored her with resin bonded bridges from her canines. She had retained deciduous canines which were extracted and dentures were placed. Left high in the occlusion and all the teeth came together and patient was happy with the result. The patient was happy with the fixed option available from a conservative treatment plan.

This very pleasant gentleman presented to us with very old upper crown and bridgework, which had started to recede and looked unsightly, and severe attrition on the lower anterior teeth, with a few teeth almost worn down to gingival level.  The patient’s GDP had advised extraction of those teeth and the patient wanted a second opinion. We did a  wax-up and a mock-up in the mouth to see if what we were planning was achievable.

To improve sufficient crown height we did surgical crown lengthening on lower anterior teeth using a surgical stent given to a periodontal colleague.  The patient was then referred to the endodontist for elective root canals on all the four lower anterior teeth. Once root canal was completed all the teeth were prepared and placed in temporaries to assess the occlusion and aesthetics and to ensure patient was happy with result.

Once everything was stable we did definitive impressions for the final restorations and the patient was restored with an increased OVD with porcelain bonded crown and bridgework on the upper and lower teeth.  The patient was very happy with the result.
