This kind and humble valued patient visited us with a very loose front tooth. He was concerned it was going to fall out one day. He wanted to get the tooth extracted and replaced in some way.
After considering his options with their associated fees, advantages, and disadvantages, our patient freely chose to pursue a bridge.
The day the tooth was extracted, we made a custom temporary bridge for him. Immediately, he had an improvement. Following three months of healing after the extraction, we performed the final preparation for a bridge and took impressions.
The final bridge was delivered to him four months following the tooth extraction. He was very pleased with the temporary bridge we made for him; he was not in a hurry to get the final bridge.
With the amount of wear on his teeth, we strongly recommended a night guard to protect his investment, along with the rest of his teeth.
