This series of blog pictures will take the reader through the typical series of procedures we employ in my Palm Harbor, Tampa Bay Fl area dentist office, focusing on dental implants.
The previous picture showed the patient with the flipper in. This picture shows the clinical presentation of tooth #8 broken off BELOW the gum line. A large post has broken, more than half of the post is bonded in this broken tooth/root.
Other treatment options would include using this highly compromised root, non removable tooth supported fixed bridgework, or removable bridge work. The correct choice of treatment is not the same for all patients or all dental offices. All are acceptable treatment options.
