Below the Surface
1. This x-ray shows two teeth which are infected and fractured beyond the point where they could be prepared, and unfortunately they needed to be removed.
4. Eight weeks later the bone around the implants has fully healed and they are now fully integrated, meaning they are ready to take the forces created when chewing. In this x-ray you can see the addition of the metal abutments inserted into the implants.
5. This final x-ray shows the final crowns fitted onto the abutments. Everything is now fully healed and healthy and the patient is extremely happy with the result, both in terms of the appearance and her restored ability to eat on this side.
