Implant and Invisalign Case Study

Dental Implant & Invisalign

Robert A had some serious periodontal problems with his 2 front teeth, as well as malaligned lower teeth.

The Dental Implants USA treatment plan called for removal of his 2 front teeth, because they were so loose, they were nearly falling out.  The oral surgeon replaced the extracted teeth with titanium dental implants, all on the same day with an IV sedation procedure.  This patient, who was so nervous, was actually smiling at the end of the surgery, asking if we have started yet!
A temporary flipper was placed and the healing process was under way.
Soon aftrwards the aligners were delivered using the Invisalign treatment system.  Robert just had to switch aligners every 2 weeks and following the computer generated model…his teeth just cruised to thier new straight position in a little over 6 months.
This was perfect timing, as Robert was ready to have his new implant crowns and abutments made by the Dental Implants USA team.  In Roberts’ case, custom made abutments were indicated because of the esthetic requirements.  Robert chose economy level crowns and the end result was thrlling to him;  he now has solid individual crowns, where before he couldn’t even bite into an apple, without worrying if his teeth would come out in the apple!.  Not so now, as he can have a carefree future for these front teeth.  All courtesy of the Dental Implants USA dental implant team.
