Doctors Comments

This patient has had problems with his teeth for many years and had numerous restorations that were breaking down. The turning point for him was when he lost his front teeth and with it, he lost his ability to play the saxophone. The appearance was not so much of a problem for him. His main concern apart from being unable to eat many foods was that as a musician he was unable to work and was also facing the loss of more teeth.
