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.
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.
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.
In this next case I made an upper partial denture to replace 5 upper front teeth.
For this patient I made a partial denture to replace her lower molars
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.
