Implant Restorations: Case 9
These implant crowns were made for an older woman who lost some teeth because of periodontal disease. We kept the edges of the crowns above her gumline because it is healthier for her gums. Because of where they are in her mouth these areas are not visible to the casual observer.
REASON FOR TREATMENT
This patient needed teeth for proper function. As a somewhat frail older person, it is imperative that she be able to chew her food for needed nourishment, effective digestion and speech.
