Dental implantation of central incisor

The man visited Dubnova’s dental clinic with a tooth injury, namely: with a traumatic fracture of the root of the central incisor (11 tooth). Fracture of the root was fatal, so the root of the tooth was removed. An early endosseous implantation with the Megagen dental implant (6 weeks after removal) and immediate soft-tissue plastic were carried out by the implant surgeon. For the next three months, the patient has a Direct Maryland restoration (this is last generation filling of a photopolymer, which is kept by a fiberglass tape on the palatine surface of the teeth), which was attached to the adjacent two teeth without their boring. For these three months, the patient's mouth was completely sanitized (treatment of gingivitis / periodontitis, caries and its complications, complete abolition of chronic infection in the oral cavity). After 3 months, a temporary crown on the dental implant was made and installed. At the same time, the patient of the clinic learned to take care for the crown on the implant, which is very important for its long-term use.

Later, the doctor performed restoration (filling) of the front 5 teeth with an aesthetic photopolymer composite, and a zirconium crown was put on the implant to replace the temporary crown.

In the photo "AFTER" the appearance of the zirconium crown directly at the time of its installation.

Restoration of front tooth

The man visited Dubnova’s dental clinic for emergency with a trauma of the tooth. He was diagnosed with a fracture of the crown of the central incisor (11 tooth). Because of the nerve exposure due to trauma, the doctor urgently performed endodontic treatment (treatment of the tooth canal) and rehabilitation (restoration of the crown part) of the tooth with an aesthetic photopolymer composite (for long-term aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of the patient, with the prospect of the subsequent production of  all ceramic crown). After 2 weeks, the restoration was relined in order to match the shape and size of the adjacent tooth more accurately.

Restoration of tooth crown

The woman applied to the Dubnova’s dental clinic for emergency with a traumatic fracture of the tooth crown of the upper jaw on the left (21 tooth). The doctor restored the tooth with an aesthetic photopolymer composite (for a long aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of the patient, with the prospect of subsequent orthodontic treatment) . The patient refused further relining since she was satisfied with the result.

Contact caries treatment (fillings)

The man applied to the Dubnova’s dental clinic with the purpose of sanitation (abolition of site of infection and restoration of normal functioning of the entire dental system). During the clinical examination caries was found on the distant contact (distal) wall of the first molar (16 tooth), in which earlier (several years ago) the root of the tooth was treated in another clinic. After analyzing the results of CBCT, which revealed the absence of endodontic pathology, the doctor decided to restore the tooth with photopolymer material without re-treating the tooth canal.

The tooth was restored in one visit, the picture "AFTER" was performed immediately after the end of treatment in the clinic.

Contact caries treatment (fillings)

The woman applied to the Dubnova’s dental clinic for the purpose of sanitation (abolition of site of infection and restoration of normal functioning of the entire dental system). During a clinical examination and a series of X-ray images, caries of the lower jaw teeth at the right (46 and 47 teeth) was found on the contact surfaces. Under local anesthesia and using the rubberdam, operational field isolation system, the teeth were restored (filled) with aesthetic photopolymer material.

Teeth abrasion treatment (restoration)

The woman visited Dubnova's dental clinic with complaints about the front teeth abrasion. In the course of clinical examination, generalized tooth abrasion was revealed (the progressive process of dental hard tissue loss beneath dentin-enamel junction, which is accompanied by a complex of aesthetic, functional and morphological changes in dental and alveolar tissues, masticatory muscles and temporomandibular joints). The doctor of the clinic proposed a plan for a full functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of the bite. Due to a number of circumstances, it was decided to postpone the full rehabilitation. To solve the aesthetic issue, the restoration of 4 anterior teeth of the upper jaw and restoration of the canine guidance (using an aesthetic photopolymer material) were carried out.

On the photo "AFTER" you can see the result in 2 weeks, restoration was performed without teeth boring.

2-stage Straumann dental implantation

The woman applied to the Dubnova’s clinic at the stage of orthodontic treatment in another clinic. In our clinic, primary adentia (absence of tooth) of the lateral incisors of the upper jaw (12 and 22 teeth) and preservation of the lateral dorsal incisor (62 tooth) were revealed. The two-stage intermediate endoosseous implantation with the Straumann dental implant in the position of 12 tooth was carried out by an implant-surgeon of the Dubnova’s Clinic, and orthodontic treatment was completed in our clinic. After the retention period (3 months after the end of orthodontic treatment), an aesthetic restoration of the 6 anterior teeth of the upper jaw was carried out: 5 ceramic veneers and 1 all ceramic crown on the implant were made.

Treatment of discolorated tooth

The man applied to the Dubnova’s dental clinic for the purpose of aesthetic rehabilitation. During the analysis of CBCT, the cause of discoloration (discoloritis) of the tooth of the upper jaw on the left (21 tooth) was found. It was the inflammation of the top of the adjacent 22 tooth, and the area of inflammation was so acute that the nerve in 21 tooth ceased to function. The dentist removed the crown and retreated the root canal of the 22 tooth, he has treated the canal initially (endodontic treatment) of 21 tooth, and restored the upper 6 anterior teeth with ceramic veneers and full crowns with restoration of the functionality of the dentition.

The woman visited Dubnova's dental clinic complaining of night pains in the molar of the lower jaw (46 tooth). The pulpitis (inflammation of the internal tissues of the tooth - pulp) was diagnosed. After the treatment of the root canals and for the purpose of long-term restoration of the tooth, it was decided to make a ceramic overlay.

Prosthetic on Straumann dental implants

The man visited Dubnova's dental clinic with the desire to fully rehabilitate his smile. Due to the significant amount of carious destruction of all teeth and periodontitis of moderate severity, the surgeon-implantologist decided to remove the roots of the remaining teeth, to install 4 implants in the upper and 6 implants in the lower jaws. Immediately after the installation of Straumann dental implants, the temporary structures were constructed and installed.  After 3 and 6 months they were replaced by permanent metal-composite non-removable restorations of the torronto-bridge type.

Caries treatment 

The man applied to the Dubnova’s dental clinic for the purpose of sanitation (abolition of site of infection and restoration of normal functioning of the entire dental system). During the clinical examination and a series of periapical X-rays, the doctor diagnosed the presence of caries on the contact surface of the molar of the lower jaw (47 tooth). Under local anesthesia using the rubberdam isolation system, the tooth was filled with a composite photopolymer material (46 tooth). Due to the diagnosed inflammation at the apex of the tooth, the patient of the clinic was referred for endodontic retreatment and subsequent restoration of the tooth.

Veneers

The woman visited the Dubnova’s clinic to restore the occlusion. During the clinical examination under the old photopolymer fillings (restorations), a dentist revealed caries and a significant amount of dental plaque. For a long-term rehabilitation it was decided (after the removal of the old restoration) to install ceramic veneers for the 10 upper and lower front teeth (that is how many of them get into the smile zone).

Слайд14

Photo "AFTER" was made on a check-up at a dentist a week after fixing the veneers.
