Before & After
The following before and after radiographs demonstrates a full-mouth rehabilitation utilizing maxillary sinus bone grafts and dental implants supporting fixed bridges and individual crowns.
The following before and after radiographs demonstrate dental implants supporting splinted and individual crowns: The after radiograph illustrates the reconstruction after seven years of function.
The following case illustrates how we can grow bone in the maxillary sinus: Radiograph #1 shows an empty sinus; #2 shows the same sinus after grafting and maturation with approximately 20mm. of usable bone; and #3 shows the sinus following placement of four 15mm. implants.
The following radiograph illustrates a right maxillary bone graft with an associated molar implant/crown. The lower left shows 3 implants supporting 3 crowns. The photograph illustrates these same 3 crowns.
The patient featured below was unable to retain and use her lower denture. Seven implants supporting three tissue bars were placed 20 years ago. These photographs and one radiograph illustrate the implants, tissue bars, attachments and dentures. She has been able to eat practically anything ever since with no retention problems.
The gentleman pictured below had great difficulty in eating with dentures. We placed implants with associated tissue bars in his upper and lower jaws. The respective dentures snapped into place, allowing him to masticate his food painlessly for the first time since wearing dentures.
The following radiograph and photograph illustrates a full subperiosteal implant that sits on the bone of the mandible and beneath the gingiva and mucosa. This type of implant is used when the lower jaw has suffered very severe resorbtion and reinforces the weakened jaw while firmly supporting and retaining a full lower denture.
