Implant Treatment in a Patient with Severe Periodontitis
The patient complained of tooth mobility, bad breath, and teeth changing their previous position in the dentition. She also noted that she had been suffering from periodontitis for many years.
Physical examination revealed that most teeth were considerably mobile and subject to removal.
We considered all the patient's wishes and offered the rehabilitation of both jaws following the "All-on-4" protocol.
In one visit, all teeth were extracted, implants were fixed in both jaws, and temporary crowns were made.
Four months later, impressions were retaken, and zirconium crowns cemented on titanium bars were made.
The patient was delighted with the result.
