The patient needed a bone graft at #5 site, but there was loss of periodontal attachment on the adjacent canine. Tooth #5 max right first premolar was fractured, decayed, with loose crown-post and significant bone loss.

Over five years ago, I became highly interested in helping patients who came to me crying because no one was offering them hope of an easy, fully functional solution for their terminal dentitions. Just as heart-tugging were the desires of those who were already suffering from full edentulism.
