I just came back from a course about Platelet Rich Fibrin and its benefits in faster healing time after an extraction, sinus lift, and implant. I even got to extract PRF from my own blood. #neverstoplearning, #PRF, #plateletrichfibrin, #dentalimplant, #extraction, #dentistinauburn, #continuingeducation

Case #4:
Pt showed up with tooth pain. Tooth was fractured mesio-distally. It was extracted atraumatically to conserve the buccal plate. Since pt wanted an implant, we also did bone grafting. An implant was placed. We restored the implant with a custom abutment and screw-retained implant crown. We prefer to use screw-retainted for its retrievability and not having to use cement, which can lead to peri-implantitis if the excess cement is not properly cleaned. #dentistinauburn, #dentalimplant, #peri-implantitis, #pacificnwdentistry, #extraction, #bonegraft, #custom-abutment, #screw-retained, #toothache, #splittooth

Case #3
This is an interesting case. Pt came in and wanted to do an implant on #18. We took a CBCT and found that the root of #18 was left there by her previous dentist. We cannot place an implant inside a root tip. Therefore, we had to extract it. Due to the time from her "extraction" to now, gingival tissue and bone grew on top of it. We had to create a flap, remove bone to extract the root. We kept it conservative to preserve the lingual and buccal plate for better implant placement. Bone grafting was done and the site was sutured closed. Pt will now wait 6 month for her implant placement.

Case #2
This is an implant case for #20. The implant placement was planned before the surgery using an impression and CBCT. This allows us to achieve the best angular and placement of the implant. A surgical guide was created and used at the time of surgery. There was no need to create a flap and only a tissue punch was necessary. This minimized the trauma to the gum and the healing time. A cover screw was placed and it will be restored in about 6 month.

Case #1
This is an orthodontic case that took approximately 15 months to complete. The pt has a deficient palate causing posterior crossbite and facial eruption of the canine. The treatment included a palatal expander and metal brackets. We did not have to trim any teeth to achieve this results.
