Lucy, a patient from Bethesda, Maryland, presented with a very dire situation after experiencing the complete loss of bone up to the floor of her nose, which happened after her impacted upper left canine (#11) was surgically extracted. She was also missing teeth next to the surgical defect, and several of her other teeth were broken down.
In addition, Lucy’s bite was non-functional, and her teeth were discolored and uneven. Elite Prosthetic Dentistry was able to restore Lucy’s smile with two preplanned dental implants, which needed to be successfully inserted within a constricted space in order to restore the damaged left side of her smile.
After placing the dental implants, Lucy was given a new smile with complete function and a very good long-term prognosis. Needless to say, Lucy is thrilled with her rejuvenated mouth and smile.
