57 year old man who had a generally failing dentition, with many missing teeth, others severely breaking down and infected. He was a heavy smoker, in a high profile public relations profession for many years and managed through this by never eating in public and never smiling very wide. In fact I had to coax the before picture smile out of him.
He was finally ready to change his life and that included stopping smoking, and full mouth reconstruction with extraction of all his teeth and immediate implants and full upper and lower implant borne prosthesis all under sedation. At no point did he go without any teeth, and even during the interim phases he was in provisional prosthesis that in his words “look better than what I had before”.
You can see how wide he smiles in the after picture and to quote him, “this has changed my life, I find myself smiling more, I feel more energized and healthier than I have in the past 15 years”.
