He was a known ectodermal dysplasia patient with completely edentulous jaws. Due to his missing teeth condition, jaw bone in the teeth bearing region was less volumetric and less dense giving his face an aged appearance. He gave the history of wearing removable dentures which was very uncomfortable. His personality and self confidence were severely affected. He was too self conscious to smile.
Maxillofacial Surgeon and Implantologist Dr. S. M. Balaji expertly planned to replace his missing teeth with dental implants. Bone deficient regions of jaw were enhanced with bone graft obtained intra orally from excess bony regions. Successfully implants were fixed in the upper and lower jaw. After 3 months implants were loaded with fixed ceramic prosthesis. Patient was very happy to have a new, young looking and beautiful smile which gave him enhanced appearance and boosted his self confidence.
