This young man came to see me recently. He had fallen as a child and broken his front teeth. Some of the teeth were capped and he had a tooth crown also. He is a young healthy farmer in his 20s and was recently struck by a gate whilst working. The blow resulted in his front teeth being catastrophically damaged. The remaining roots needed to be removed and the previous crown was also damaged.
We were able to help him by replacing the damaged crown and replacing the lost teeth with dental implants. These photos show the final result. I am particularly pleased with this case as the teeth look very natural – I always want to make them look like “they grew there”. The patient was very pleased with the results. He is a man of few words but said “It’s brilliant, thank you.”
When people ask me why I do dentistry – This is why!
