Dental repair

    Sometimes, even with modern techniques, regeneration of hard tissues and the adjustment of soft tissues present difficulties in some cases. Perhaps we should turn to classic dentistry for solutions.

    A 45 year old male patient came to our clinic to replace a crown on a central incisor which had become detached and lost. A concern developed on our part as to whether orthodontics was capable of shaping the soft tissues in order to solve such a serious aesthetic problem.

    • The patient was referred to a partnering orthodontic clinic who successfully completed the Forced orthodontic eruption, having transferred the soft tissues satisfactorily.

    A metal-ceramic crown in the shape and color of adjacent teeth proved successful, both aesthetically and functionally, fully satisfying the patient.
