About this case

Fred is  his seventies. A live of hard working offered him virtually everything. A humorist  joyful person. But there was a one major “but” that clouded all: pain when eating.

He lost his implants years ago, had bone grafts and new implants with got lost as well. Two implants were still present  but they were now moving and no longer useful. Pain when eating and even talking was always around. Under local anesthesia 4 dental zygoma implants were placed whit one regular implant. We did an aesthetic pas and within a week his new teeth were screwed in place. Fred’s live problem was resolved. I seldom have seen a more thankful patient.
