Case D

Retracted clinical view, #3 is seen with advanced buccal recession exposing the roots & decay under the crown. Mirror view of the occlusal of #3. X-ray film of #3 showing the decay & previous root canal therapy. There was no option to save the tooth. In order to keep the patient in 1st molar occlusion and her ability to chew on her right side, an implant was needed.
To prepare the site, #3 was extracted & bone grafted. X-ray with implant #3 in place. Panoramic x-ray showing the implant 4 months after placement. The patient was referred back her general dentist to complete the custom abutment and crown.
