This patient did not like his smile and complained of an uncomfortable bite. He had a severe grinding habit that had caused extreme wear on all of his teeth, some of which were almost worn down to the gum line. Two teeth were hopeless and required extraction.


This complex treatment required a team approach. An orthodontist and oral surgeon were needed to correctly position his teeth and jaws. Then, we placed two implants, completed gum surgery and placed porcelain restorations on implants and all remaining teeth. The result looks great, and our patient finds his new bite to be much more comfortable than before.
