Prof Dr Christian Mehl
After carrying out 3D X-rays and detailed diagnostic treatment planning, we went ahead with extracting all her upper teeth followed by the placement of four implants in her upper jaw with simultaneous bone augmentation. These implants were loaded immediately with a set of temporary teeth that were digitally designed, milled, and ready prior to the surgery. After an initial healing phase of three months, the upper temporary teeth were changed to a permanent restoration (CoCrMoW framework and PMMA milled teeth). For her lower missing single lateral incisor, we placed an adhesive single-winged Maryland/Rochette bridge. The patient was very pleased with the final results and her new restored smile.
