Gum Disease: New Teeth - New Bone Reconstruction
Periodontitis left untreated for too long can destroy all of the important elements for normal jaw function, the ability to eat normally or eat favorite foods due to significant if not total loss of teeth, bone and connective tissue.
Despite having significant bone loss on the lower jaw, enough jawbone integrity remained in the anterior (front most) section of the jaw that enabled Dr. Nazarian to fortify and augment bone quantity.
The Magic of Cantilevered Bridgework
Strategically placed implants permitted the use of a custom cantilevered fixed bridge, increasing the total tooth count to 10 on the lower arch.
The upper arch underwent extractions, bone grafts and guided tissue regeneration to produce an ample ridge of bone that was comfortably fitted for a cosmetic upper denture.
Recommended viewing for patients considering treatment options for varying stages of gingivitis and periodontitis.
