Recent Case Studies
This review article outlines some of the basic requirements that need to be taken into consideration with large scale cases where there is alveolar loss. Should we provide long pontics or connections to implants? Perhaps gum work or a flange is needed? Should alveolar reduction be considered? Perhaps alveolar reconstruction is a better way to goView Case Study
Anorexics can have multiple dental complications and tend to avoid therapy. This case shows the treatment of a recovering anorexic using an “Immediate Transition Protocol” where extractions, implants, bone regeneration and placement of provisional restorations were provided in a single sessionView Case Study
Gingival margins around implants are often higher than those on adjacent natural teeth which can make for compromised aesthetics. This is a case where four implants were placed in a maxillary arch with tooth irregularity and gingival hyperplasia. By careful management of the gingival tissues about the natural teeth and the implant abutments an aesthetic result was developedView Case Study
Localized Juvenile Periodontitis produces profound deformities which are difficult if not impossible to treat. This case is of a very attractive young lady who rarely smiles because of her dental deformity. She has an extensive malocclusion secondary to her periodontal problems. Extensive multi-disciplinary therapy was required prior to implant placement and restorative therapyView Case Study
After many years of function, an implant and the region where it is located appeared to be failing. The implant was removed and replaced with another while at the same time performing an internal sinus lift and vertical bone augmentationView Case Study
A patient presented with diffuse pains, the origin of which was difficult to diagnose because there were several potential sources of the pain. Eventually, the situation resolved when the teeth in the region were removed and replaced with dental implantsView Case Study
This case shows how a complex aesthetic situation was managed by replacing not only the existing bridgework but also the healthy supporting teeth with implantsView Case Study
