About this case

Veronica is in her fifties. She came to my consultation since her upper teeth failed, and she chooses for implants.Since her lower jaw was too short, and a dental class II present, she asked me if it was possible to fix this life on-going problem of her too short lower jaw, with deficient chin at the same time as the immediate loading in the upper jaw. So the teeth in the upper were replaced with an immediate loading in chrome cobalt with resin teeth. At the same time the lower jaw was advanced to a presumably class I relation ship, so that her lips would have a normal flow. This included also a moderate genioplasty advancementThe week after her surgery her dream was realised, and her immediate loading was wonderfully fitting on her advanced lower jaw in combination of a genioplasty.
