Often times in our lives we are blindsided by events that change us forever. That is what happened in this case. This patient was involved in a car accident that caused her to lose her two front teeth on the lower arch. This was about 8 years ago. Immediately after the surgery she had a bone graft done to replace the bone that was lost when the teeth were lost. Although she lost two teeth in the accident she had one implant placed by another dentist. The restoration on this implant had two teeth and looked un-natural. Her teeth were not aligned properly and she wanted to have braces.
When she got to the orthodontist it was apparent she was extremely crowded. The implant double crown was removed and she went through several years of orthodontic treatment. At the conclusion of her treatment her teeth are beautiful and straight.
