Image 1 – Crowns
This patient had severe wear issues on his upper front teeth caused by an overbite. A correction was needed by first evaluating and waxing up his teeth on a set of precise jaw mounted models and the adding crowns.
These were set to better and more efficient bite planes and his teeth are now stable both functionally and aesthetically.
Image 2 – Lower Bridge & Crowns
This patient had severe wear issues on his upper front teeth caused by an overly bulky lower front bridge. Chipping and severe wear on the inside of these teeth were present. A correction was needed by first evaluating and waxing up his teeth on a set of precise jaw mounted models.
Then we proceeded to open up his bite with a new lower bridge and crowns and a bridge for the remaining teeth. These were set to better and more efficient bite planes and his teeth are now stable both functionally and aesthetically.
Image 3 – Porcelain Restorations, Bridges, Implants & Crowns
This patient presented with teeth that were continuously breaking down. We did a thorough evaluation using the 21 photos we take for all our workups and also studying her bite with mounted models to see how we can restore their teeth to last a lifetime.
Based on our wax up, Dr. Pio Modi explained to this patient that the only way to achieve this was by opening up her bite with porcelain restorations for the teeth that can be saved and bridges and implants for the teeth that needed to be removed.
This patient was in agreement with this. Despite the damage that was present only 3 teeth had to be removed and replaced with implants and a bridge. The remaining teeth were restored with porcelain crowns and gold crowns for the back molars.
By opening the bite, we were able to achieve more efficient non-damaging chewing forces that worked in harmony with the jaw joints and muscles. And equally important, they had a new smile that they were proud and happy to show to others again.
Image 4 – Jaw Surgery, Teeth Re-alignment, Implants & Crowns
This patient had major jaw alignment and crowding issues along with missing teeth and multiple heavily restored existing teeth. His treatment was interdisciplinary between both Dr. Modi and a local orthodontist.
Jaw surgery was performed followed by the teeth being aligned in a position that allowed for Dr. Modi to restore his heavily restored teeth to an ideal bite. 3 Implants and multiple crowns were placed along with bite balancing to even out the forces on his teeth and allow for efficient chewing.
He is very pleased with both his current smile and functional outcome.
Image 5 – Implants, Grafting & Porcelain Restorations
Force management was a key for this patient as he had broken two front teeth that had no existing fillings.
The key was staging his treatment which involved extensive planning by Dr. Modi. 7 implants were placed along with grafting to create the ideal gingiva around his front teeth which is the “framework” for the art which is the porcelain restorations.
His lower teeth were then restored followed by his upper front teeth and molars. Forces on all teeth were balanced using our digital bite recorder to confirm. This patient has been stable and very excited to show his smile again.
Image 6 – Porcelain & Resin Toppers and an Implant Bridge
This patient presented with a fractured bridge and the teeth underneath it on his upper front teeth and another bridge beside it that was on its way to the same failure.
After our diagnostic workup we recommended that the best way to treat him would be to open his bite with porcelain and resin toppers and then an implant bridge with grafting to replace the broken teeth and a new bridge to replace the one beside it.
Opening and balancing his bite was key to reducing the bite force on these new bridges. He is now restored to optimal function and has smile that he is very pleased with.
