Treatment planning for tooth #8
Posted on 08.06.2012 07:32 PM By Simha Kukunooru In Implants
Patient is a 52 year old male with non-contributory medical history. Implants # 5 and 9 were placed 10 years ago. He has an FPD from #4- 13 with #3 as distal cantilever. He presents today with symptomatic #8. Upon clinical examination, a sinus tract was noted on the buccal of #8. Mobility could not be assessed. Patient has a low smile line. Radiographs reveal internal resorption #8 and radiolucensy around the middle-third of the implant #9.
To be conservative, I am planning on sectioning the FPD on #7M and #9D and extracting and grafting #8, followed by delayed implant placement and crown.
Please suggest on treatment planning the case?
