Cosmetic Case of The Day

This patent came to me with loose, painful, and infected, lower front teeth. I extracted them and made him an immediate lower partial denture. All done at the same visit-so he was never without teeth.

Immediate partial denture case this afternoon

This patient’s upper front teeth and old fixed bridge broke off. We discussed treatment options. Since the teeth were decayed and badly broken down, I recommended extracting them and making an immediate provisional partial denture. Following healing we can do crown lengthening periodontal surgery and make a fixed bridge from canine to canine or make her a final partial denture. I extracted the teeth and delivered the immediate provisional partial denture during the same 1 hour visit this afternoon.

Immediate partial dentures I did this week

This 68 year old patient broke his 3 front teeth. Unfortunately the teeth were broken below the gumline and non-restorable, and we had to extract them. We placed dental implants at the time of extraction and I made him a temporary partial denture to use for 4 months while he is healing.  After healing and the dental implants have osseointegrated, I will place fixed crowns on top of the implants, and cement them in place.

This 65 year old patient broke his front tooth off biting into corn on the cob at his office picnic party. I was able to glue the tooth back in temporarily while I made him a temporary partial denture. We then extracted the remaining root and placed an implant. In a few months after the implant has fully osseointegrated  I will make the permanent fixed cemented implant tooth crown.

partial dentures- examples

This patient lost his 2 lower central incisors. We placed a bone graft to build up his lower jaw, and I made him an immediate partial denture while he heals. We will place dental implants in 3-4 months.

Immediate partial denture cases

In these 2 examples of immediate partial dentures, Dr. Gentry extracts the patients broken, decayed, hopeless teeth and places the partial denture at the same visit. Following healing dental implants, fixed bridges or a flexible partial denture will be fabricated.

The partial denture was made before the teeth were extracted so she was never without teeth.
