Here is a picture of Gary, a person whose time was consumed by an active career and being a family man. Years of benign neglect (not keeping up with routine dental visits, something everyone has difficulty with from time to time) and a fair share of mild dental anxiety slowly accumulated to the point where Gary was in distress and significant pain.
At the time he presented himself in our office, he had a thick moustache which was grown to help cover the poor dentition and frequently spoke with his hand covering his mouth. He felt desperate however and was "ready" to get done what needed to be done.
We proposed a variety of treatment plans for Gary to choose from. A popular option, fitting for dentures, was something not desired by the patient. Gary did not want teeth that would be taken in and out of his mouth.
Despite having "tight finances" due to a divorce and children in college, Gary chose a treatment plan and financing arrangements that enabled him to easily afford 11 implants to replace all upper teeth (he opted for the Gold Standard of tooth replacement).
Here are a few photos which show before, after and during dental implant work.
As the far upper right photo clearly shows, Gary's upper teeth were extremely unstable due to caries and periodontal disease. After the infection was stabilized, we surgically removed all of the upper teeth and placed the implant devices. Gary wore a temporary denture while his tissues were healing from the oral surgery.
The first photo in this 3 part sequence shows gum tissue that has healed quite nicely and uniformly. Osseointegration (titanium implant material successfully integrated with natural jaw bone) is now complete; the patient is ready for the abutments and eventual new crowns.
The second photo shows superb alignment and symmetry of the custom handcrafted ceramics used by Dr. Rothenberg.
The last photo is Gary's new smile. Note that the moustache is missing. The overwhelming cosmetic impact of Gary's makeover was significant. Gary looked and felt years younger and has renewed confidence. Gary is now engaged and has invited our staff to his wedding.
