Oral rehabilitation of patient with chronic periodontitus

09 Dec 2013

The patient is a 45 year-old male who was diagnosed with chronic periodontitis. The periodontal disease caused tooth mobility which resulted in tooth loss. The patient had previously undergone partial extraction of tooth structure in the maxillary arch and full extraction of tooth structure in the mandibular arch. Subsequent to extraction, an immediate denture was made to aid as a bandage and to temporarily restore function and aesthetics. The condition of the patient?s periodontium was improved and he subsequently had a maxillary and mandibular prosthesis fabricated to restore function and aesthetics.
