Here are a few more of the dental implant cases we have handled throughout our 45 years as an Oxnard dentist.
Dental Implant Case Study 1
This patient had a pre-existing long span bridge where the last molar failed and the bridge had to be cut. Only the front two abutment crowns were left. Three dental implants were placed, replacing his bicuspid and two molars. After four months of implant osseointegration, the case is crowned. See the next photos below for the crowns.
This is the case after it has been restored. The three implants are now integrated after four months. Then they are now crowned. The crowns on the implants look better than the real teeth with crowns.
Dental Implant Case Study 2
This lady lived her whole life with dentures and was in misery. She received four dental implants on her lower jaw. These dental implants were surgically placed 8 years ago and still worked to this day.
She, after four months now, had her existing lower denture modified to clip on to the dental implant system for stabilization. See how her low lip is supported. Now she was comfortable and out of floating lower denture misery.Contact an Implant Specialist
Dental Implant Case Study 3
This case involved extracting two failed root canal treated teeth. See the fractured root on the top X-ray. He was put to sleep and received pure oxygen during treatment. You can see the dental implants on the X-ray and in the mouth. The patient wore a healing flipper for four months.
This is what dental implants can look like. After four months, I placed the cores and prepared the teeth for crowning.
In these photos, the porcelain jackets are now cemented onto the two implants. The case has been completed successfully.

Dental Implant Case Study 4
This patient lost his teeth due to periodontal gum disease. He required three dental implants. He was put to sleep with iv sedation for the surgery.
After four months, the dental implants received their core abutments and crowns are fabricated.
The crowns are cemented. Case completed. You can’t tell he has dental implants and crowns. Restored smile and a restored bite.
