This case study was adapted from the following citation: Keith, S. “Improving Implant Surgical and Prosthetic Outcomes with T-Scan,” (Feb. 25, 2016). Watch a full webinar on this presentation here.
The patient is an interior designer in her early 60s, with very high aesthetic demands. She was in the middle of treatment when she presented for a second opinion with Dr. Keith. During this initial visit, there was no sign of active infection, and while her occlusal discomfort annoyed her, treatment at the time was not an emergent situation.
- Had implants placed, but had concerns her teeth did not fit correctly.
- Reported constant headaches. In fact, she removed the provisional bridge on her right side in order to sleep at night, but would wear it during the day.
- After a little more than three years, the patient contacted Dr. Keith once again.
The patient reported she had completed treatment, which involved the removal of two implants in the posterior maxilla and placement of four additional implants. Once the final prostheses were delivered, she had returned to the office multiple times for repeated adjustment of her bite. Unfortunately, she reported that she still had a feeling that her face was crooked, her smile was off, and it was interfering with her quality of life.
