Implant Case Through Impacted Tooth

Download brochure in PDF

Lady, 52 years old, who had worn a denture for about 16 years and wanted a permanent solution. She had been advised she had to do extensive surgery to remove impacted tooth. She didn’t want the option. As she had seen the effect of surgery on her family members. So she opted to remain with denture. She visited our facility. Surgery and Ortho extrusion was ruled out. Various articles cite success of implants driven through impacted teeth if morbidity due to surgery is to be avoided. And have reported various degrees of success. So we opted for this technique.
