This patient had an implant placed in Mexico to minimize her treatment cost but was very displeased with her results. The surgeon tried to surgically correct the uneven gum line without success. The patient met with several dentists and surgeons who all told her that nothing could be done and what she had was as good as it could be. Then she found Dr. Beck. Working with a local prosthodontist, Dr. Beck was able to correct the uneven gum line with a connective tissue graft and the prosthodontist created some new crowns. The patient could not be happier with the final result.
This patient was unhappy with the appearance of his smile, but also had difficulty chewing and eating due to his missing back teeth and uneven bite. He had been told that all his teeth needed removed and dentures were his only solution until he met Dr. Beck. Dr. Beck developed a plan including orthodontics, dental implants, and periodontal therapy to correct his bite, straighten his teeth, level the gum line, and replace the missing teeth. Although treatment took almost 3 years, he couldn’t be happier to have been able to keep his teeth and can now eat whatever he wants.
This patient had severe periodontitis, missing teeth, and a few teeth that needed removed and replaced due to the severe bone loss. 2 teeth were removed and a total of 3 dental implants were placed, connective tissue grafting un the upper and lower front teeth to level the gum line, and crowns were placed on the upper front teeth. She could not be happier with the results and has referred many friends and family to Dr. Beck.
This patient had lost his lower back teeth many years ago and was becoming unhappy with the fit of his partial denture and desired dental implants to provide better retention and stability for his artificial teeth. He had been told that he did not have enough bone in the lower back jaw for dental implants and needed to have his remaining teeth removed in order to place implants. When he met with Dr. Beck, he was happy to hear that the was an option to keep his remaining teeth and place 5 dental implants to restore his bite. He also would no longer need to wear any artificial teeth. The dental implants and bone grafting was done in a single visit and just 4 short months later he had new lower molars to enjoy some chips and salsa (which he had been longing to eat for decades!)
