Missing Teeth Before & After
Mr G lost his central incisor tooth having suffered a root fracture and repeated infections. As a result he had lost significant volume of bone in the jaw and so prior to replacing his tooth with a dental implant, the lost bone in the area was first replaced with a bone graft taken from the chin. This then allowed us to place the implant and related crown in an aesthetically correct position. This is ever so important to get right when dealing with the front of the mouth, particularly if the patient shows their teeth and gum-line when they smile.
