Betty’s Dental Technology Story
Betty presented to our office several years ago with only a few teeth remaining in her upper jaw. She was quite displeased with her smile and could not enjoy her favorite foods. Due to Betty having multiple missing teeth and questionable available bone for implants, a CT scan with virtual imaging was recommended to assist in an overall implant treatment plan. The scan image showed Betty had adequate bone, and implants were virtually placed. Betty returned to our office, and after reviewing the image and plan, she accepted treatment to replace her upper jaw with an implant supported restoration. Below are a pre-treatment photograph, a converted CT scan image with implants virtually placed, and a final post-treatment photograph displaying Betty’s final result. She was extremely pleased with the outcome, including both her new appearance and the ability to enjoy eating the foods she loves.
