Case 9: Prosthetically-driven anterior esthetic implant placement and restoration

Dr. Scott Froum, New York, NY.

Patient Presentation

A 27-year-old female presented in 2007 with a non-contributory medical history. Her dental history includes extraction of a failed primary canine in 2004. She had temporary crowns fabricated 1 year after extraction with an acrylic bridge from teeth #10-#12.

The patient complained of color match, over-contoured bulkiness, and the inability to perform adequate oral hygiene. A surgical index was constructed as a reference in order to place the implant #11 in a prosthetically-driven manner.
