Here is a cost effective way to treat a patient who had a history of periodontal disease followed by subsequent bone loss and recession. This patient’s current periodontal condition is now controlled. Pocketing depths are 2-3mm, tissue levels are stable and routine periodontal cleanings every 4-6months.
Treatment: We fabricated a removable cold cure acrylic resin prosthesis from a mock wax-up on a solid cast. The cast was carefully surveyed and blocked out to allow a path of insertion while still maintaining some retentive undercuts.
Advantages: Cost effective, predictable long term result, non-surgical alternative.
