Doctors Comments

This young lady suffered from advanced erosion of most of her teeth related to Bulimia and experienced severe sensitivity and pain because the pulps of the teeth were exposed. There was no adequate tooth structure left to do any sort of conservative repair. One option considered for the upper was full set teeth replacement with All On 4 with aesthetic gum replacement. However, the gum health and choreography were ideal and we decided to pursue a course of treatment involving segmental bridges nestled within the natural gums and supported by dental implants.
