Case Study 45: Implants

  • The patient had two missing back teeth.  The patient displayed limited bone volume and was treatment planed for extensive bone grafting before implants could be placed.  Dr. Graham Meng worked with new techniques and technology to avoid the painful, costly, and time consuming grafting to place implants without any grafting.  This streamlined the treatment process and greatly reduced the cost, without sacrificing predictability or long term results.

  • To restore an implant, a special impression post must be screwed into the implant and an impression taken to transfer information to the lab.

  •  Dr. Graham Meng observes all steps of the implant process to ensure the proper foundation is laid for the crowns to ensure longevity of restorations.

  • Final implant crowns restore the patient’s ability to chew.
