Party gums

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.
