A digital X-ray revealed multiple miniature tooth-like structures in the upper left central incisor region. These are called compound odontomas. These structures obstructed the complete formation and eruption of the permanent central incisor tooth causing it to remain deeply embedded (impacted) in the upper anterior jaw bone.
Maxillofacial Surgeon & Implantologist Dr. S.M. Balaji completely removed the odontomas and impacted central incisor tooth. A bone graft was taken from the oblique ridge of the left lower jaw & fixed to the upper central incisor region. Following successful augmentation of the upper front jaw, an implant was placed & ceramic crown of exact color match was fixed. The man was very happy to have a pleasing smile with superior aesthetics.
