When Ali approached us, he was concerned about his smile’s appearance, health, and function. He had already received multiple dental bridges and crowns, but due to wear and tear he was not satisfied with how his smile looked or felt. Finally, when he broke one of his dental bridges during a workout at the gym, enough was enough. Fortunately, he found our practice, where we have the right experience and technology to give him a new smile that he can rely on. Dr. Keyvan Kar is a highly trained prosthodontist who specializes in giving patients their healthy smiles back. Keep reading to learn exactly how we transformed Ali’s smile and life with dental implants.
Before receiving treatment from Dr. Kar, Ali had 8 missing teeth, 5 cavities, and 6 defective restorations. Once one of his dental bridges collapsed at the gym, Ali simply had to come see us. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Kar specializes in cases just like this one. During a consultation with Ali, he explained the health effects that missing and decayed teeth can have. Prosthodontists have extensive training and knowledge in the restoration of teeth, bone, and specifically the use of dental implants. When Ali made it clear that he was interested in fixed prosthetics, Dr. Kar knew that dental implants were the answer. Especially for Ali’s tooth loss and desired goals, dental implants will be able to preserve his jawbone while also keeping his remaining natural teeth intact.
After we developed a personalized treatment plan for Ali, Dr. Kar replaced his consecutive missing teeth with implant-retained bridges. Unlike his previous dental bridge, these are secured by dental implants for extra strength and stability. His additional missing teeth were replaced with implant-retained crowns and an implant-retained partial denture. This combination of customized treatments allowed Ali to receive permanent, fixed restorations with the health and aesthetic benefits of dental implants.
In addition to these replacements, Ali had 4 of his old and defective crowns updated with our beautifully personalized dental crowns. These seamlessly blended into his smile to create a beautiful and functional set of teeth.
