ūü¶∑‚ú® ¬°Patients often comment that they cannot have implants due to lack of bone, heavy medication, contraindications, etc!


And this is one of those very common cases in my clinic that challenges all those norms. A poly-medicated patient with serious coagulation disorders, severe respiratory problems, very poor quality of life due to wearing a removable prosthesis that couldn’t wear, with severe chronic periodontitis, and ex/smoker, who had previously failed implants.


The planning in this case, due to extreme atrophy, was radical. All upper teeth were extracted

She had an old implant placed by me 6 or 8 years ago, which is perfectly fine, and was included in the rehabilitation.


Implants were placed without opening the gums (flapless) without stitches, an intraoral scan was performed, proper prosthetic planning was done, and that same afternoon, 4 hours later!!!!!! this provisional rehabilitation could be placed.


When multiple extractions and immediate implants are done, usually a transitional prosthesis needs to be placed for a few months, until the gums mature and heal, to subsequently move to a more definitive prosthesis.


Always fixed, without giving stitches, without opening towards the palate, producing the minimum possible trauma, to have immediate results from the first day. The patient hadn’t eaten a hamburger or a sandwich in years, hadn’t bitten with quality in years, and we were able to achieve this in just ONE DAY.



Only in Gran Canaria. ūüĆīūüėä.
