Clinical case 322
The patient, at the age of 56, came to our clinic because she was unhappy with her aesthetic and functional teeth condition. The maxillary incisors were practically coming out of her mouth, not allowing the patient to close her lips. As a first step, a periodontal surgery has been performed for the upper teeth, followed by a temporary denture from canine to canine, managing to save the loose teeth. Later we have done a complete bridge for the lower teeth and for the upper teeth a ceramic fused to metal bridge from canine to canine and a skeletal denture for the lateral areas.
The challenge of the case was to bring the upper teeth in the right position and, in order to obtain this, angulated coronary radicular reconstructions have been used. We have managed to obtain a very good result, the patient’s physiognomy being highly improved.
