About this case

October 2015 Surgery - January 2016 the fixed teeth. A little old lovely lady. Many people are taking care of her in a most lovely way in the rest-home. Nobody though find a solution for the teeth problem. People told Nora the old story: your own teeth are always the best. Keep them as long as you can. People and professionals alike. The years went on. You get used to all kind of things...

Nora was very osteoporotic in the jaws bone, so Dr Defrancq decided during the surgery and exceptionally to wait for the immediate loading process. We waited the full three months till the implants were grown in the bone. But finally it was realised. LOVELY, fixed teeth, extremely happy Nora. Thanks also to all the caring people who came with Nora and supported her. Sometimes the world is so touching, lovely and real.
