Immediate Anterior Implants*
So the picture on the right was taken the day the teeth were extracted, implants were placed and temporary crowns seated. Just a few years ago it was never even consider a possibility to do such a procedure. Still today, many restorative/surgical teams will not attempt this. More
Crowns seated 4 months later
The bishop was very happy with the results and thankful this could all be done within the confines of his travel and work restrictions. More
Only with CAD/CAM technology
This case was a great example of a coordinated effort between the surgical-restorative team and CAD/CAM technology. The exam revealed a hopeless dental situation, the teeth were extracted; implants and temporary crowns were done on the same day. When the bishop retuned 4 months later, the surgeon confirmed that the teeth had successfully integrated into the bone. He then came directly over to our office and the implants were optically scanned. 10 days later the custom abutments and all ceramic crowns were delivered and he returned to Peru.
It is so rewarding to be able to provide this level of care, however in this case there was added stress because of the extreme time table we had to work within from beginning to end. There was no margin for error, but that is the benefit of digital technology, it is virtually perfect every time.
