This patient lost a front tooth due to an accident that caused external resorption, a condition in which the root deteriorates. Dr. Essenmacher used a temporary implant crown to shape the gums to give them the perfect contour for her new implant crown. Please note that the "before" picture has the abutment in place (the piece that is screwed onto the implant and creates a ledge for the crown to be cemented to).
Implants are a wonderful option for patients who are missing one or more teeth. In this case, the before picture shows the custom zirconia abutment, which is what supports the implant crown. The after picture is of the final crown cemented in place.
This patient presented to us with a temporary implant bridge that he'd had for many years. It was finally time to make him a permanent bridge! Dr. Essenmacher used a screw-retained design which allows for easy access to the bridge if it ever needs to be removed.
