A POST MEANT FOR MY DENTAL COLLEAGUES…
“DENTAL FACE LIFT” CARRIED OUT WITH BASAL IMPLANTS ON A SEVERE CLASS III MALE PATIENT
Presenting complaints of 48 yrs old male patient with prognathic mandible:
* Multiple missing teeth
* Severely compromised chewing efficiency and esthetics.
All existing teeth were extracted followed by full mouth rehab with Immediate Load Basal Implants (Simpladent & Ihde Dental, Switzerland). Patient’s Class III skeletal condition was considered while judiciously positioning implants in the upper and lower jaws.
A cross arch metal –acrylic bridgework was cemented within a period of 72 hrs of implantation providing the patient with fixed teeth & a good smile. We could offer an edge to edge anterior positioning of teeth improving esthetics considerably.
Patient is to report back after 1 year for permanent Zirconia prostheses.
