We used our Dental Surgery for the 1st time today for a rescue case. The case was started by another lab with a clinician we do not work with, and after several attempts to get things right and failing every time the patient lost patience and was referred to a clinician we work with on a regular basis.
After a hectic morning session we had isolated various problem implants and began to prepare 2
immediate prothesis’s for the implants that were still sound.
By lunch time we had 2 implant retained dentures ready to fit this went well and after fine tuning the occlusion we were then able to optimise the dentures.
The dentures had the teeth shapes and characters altered and the flanges and palate removed converting them into screw retained temporary restorations.
While this was going on the clinician provided us with new upper and lower fixture head impressions so we could begin work on the screw retained bite blocks and other diagnostic stages before commencing with the production of the definitive restorations.
After final checks the screw retained temporary bridges were polished and fitted.
The patient was overcome with joy after 2 years of been messed around by unprofessional Clinicians and Technicians he could not believe what we had achieved in a single day.
All in all a great result and excellent team work by Lee, Phil, Paul, and the clinical team and of course the patient who had to take another leap of faith by coming to the surgery and agreeing to let us take control of the treatment planning.
We could not of wished for a better way to open the BDT Surgery. :O)
