Case 4 – Bilateral Posterior Teeth

Patient History

A healthy female has lost a tooth on her lower right-hand side ten years earlier. She also needed the removal of her lower left first molar due to a vertical fracture of her tooth which had previously undergone root canal treatment. Surrounding dentition was of sound health.

Treatment Options

Options of a partial denture, bridge work and implant supported crowns were offered. The surrounding teeth were of good health and were unrestored. In discussion with the patient the option of having two implant supported crowns was decided on, as to avoid any damage to the surrounding teeth.

Treatment Carried Out

The patient was nervous and was treated under I.V. sedation to allow the patient to be more comfortable throughout the procedure. Two implants were placed, one on either side. Due to excellent stability during surgery the healing was short and both crowns were restored by 3 months.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
