Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement
Patient Rebecca, aged 30, had missing upper lateral incisors on either side and the canine was missing on the right side. On taking the history, she had got her impacted canine on the upper right side extracted ten years back, prior to orthodontic treatment. The deciduous canine (milk teeth) was moved into the position of right lateral incisor. The deciduous canine had been mobile for a while and it exfoliated when she bit into a apple.
Before Treatment & With Healing Abutment
Radiographs were taken and on finding healthy bone, she was advised to go in for an implant to replace the missing teeth. The implants were not immediately loaded, but a composite veneer was bonded to the adjacent teeth temporally masking the healing abutment. An all-ceramic crown, along with a aesthetic abutment were placed to finish the case.

Dental Braces and Ceramic Bridge for Congenitally Missing Laterals
Patient Monica, aged 18, came with the complaint of spacing in her upper anterior teeth. An oral and radiographic examination she had congenitally missing laterals ( the teeth just adjacent to the central two teeth were missing from birth) on either side.
Missing Teeth, Teeth with corrected spacing and Bridge
She was advised to undergo braces to correct the spacing after which, an all-ceramic bridge would be given to rehabilitate the front teeth both functionally and aesthetically. (The midline was compromised slightly as the patient refused to undergo tooth removal for correction of the midline.)
Retreatment of Root Canal, Laser Sterilization
Patient Dona, aged 26, came to me with severe pain on the right lower side. She gave a history of having undergone root canal treatment a year back. On taking a radiograph (X ray) the tooth was incompletely obturated or blocked and an abscess had developed. The tooth was immediately opened to relieve the pain. On the recall visit, the canal was retreated and laser sterilization was done. It was subsequently filled and is now asymptomatic. The radiograph shows marked improvement in the bone loss periapically.
Root Canal, Post and Ceramic Crown.
Patient Satish aged 39 reported with pain in the right lower region and a fractured second premolar. On examination, he had caries (cavities) with pulpal involvement of the right lower first molar. The second premolar had fractured at the cervical region. On taking the history, he had undergone rootcanal treatment for the lower second premolar four years ago. Rootcanal treatment was done for the molar. A post was placed on the second premolar to salvage the teeth. Both teeth were given ceramic crowns.
