Patient Story – Youhana

Dr. Wang:
At Seda Dental, we're basically a group practice.

Dr. Wang:

Speaker 2:
Using the best techniques in today's day and age. Here is one area I'm worried about – this sinus region. Are you gonna stay away from it?

Dr. Wang:
Yeah, we're staying away from it. Youhna's problem was she came in with her anterior section of the bridge, meaning her front section of the bridge. You have two pieces. Those teeth underneath that bridge, some of it was root canaled and some of it was just fractured, meaning they were broken down. What I'm gonna be doing today is I'm gonna be taking out her front teeth, which is gonna amount to about seven... Let me see exactly. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine teeth in the front. They are basically a old crown and bridge. It's been over 15 years old, and she's had everything done to it. Now, they're breaking down and there's no way to save it, so this is our last alternative at this point.

Youhna:
I have to have implants because the two bridges that I have, the big one at the left, it's broken.

Dr. Wang:
My recommendation was you need to take these teeth out because there's no other choice. Otherwise, it's gonna cause pain and infection. When I suction these crowns, you have metal underneath.

Youhna:
I didn't feel discomfort at all.

Dr. Wang:
I had to take out those teeth and restore her, or give her some type of prosthesis at the end that's what she had before. I'm just going through some suctioning of the bridge. We're almost there.

Youhna:
I trust him.

Dr. Wang:
All I gotta do is just rotate it a little bit and viola. She needed to have implants done. This was tougher because-

Youhna:
I'm looking forward for my beautiful and the useful teeth.

Dr. Wang:
We first started off taking impressions of her teeth so that we had some type of temporary teeth to be able to place right after the procedure. The one unique thing is that we did use mini implants as a temporary.

Youhna:
I'm amazed about his skill.

Dr. Wang:
What we're doing now is retrofitting. There's definitely a long term benefit with doing the implants now than later. Now it doesn't fit. Just kidding. Bite down. The prognosis of these implants taking and lasting for a long term is very, very high. The one unique thing is that we did uses mini implants as a temporary.

Youhna:
New teeth. Excellent.
