A woman has come to us with a complaint about the secondary adentia (absence of masticatory teeth on the lower jaw), with overloaded teeth in the frontal area.
The reason was that the patient's lower jaw had several crowns on the masticatory teeth and a partial removable prosthesis, which she did not wear. As a result, these crowns were deformed and the roots of the tooth cracked. The roots cracked in the area of tooth 4.4 and 4.5, and a split appeared on the left side of tooth 3.6. The split roots of the teeth injured the gums. It became impossible to chew food.
It is important to note that the patient underwent 4 heart surgeries. Of course, she was very afraid to have surgery to implant teeth, because after implantation the doctor prescribes antibiotics. In addition, the patient takes drugs to thin the blood. The fear of implantation in this case was quite justified.
