Immediate Placement and Implant Loading for Expedited Patient Care: A Patient Report
Balshi, Thomas J. / Wolfinger, Glenn J.
This patient report concerns etiologic factors leading to a failed natural dentition, masticatory function, and poor dental esthetics in a 30-year-old woman. The surgical and restorative treatment provided for the patient was designed to address her dental phobia, location of residence, and debilitated oral condition. While the following case report details an example of the clinical success that can be achieved through advances in dental implant treatment, the most satisfying event was not necessarily the procedure itself, but the profound change that the generosity of the osseointegration community has made on the life of a needy individual. Through the active leadership of the Osseointegration Foundation Charitable Grant Program, the patient, whose complex treatment is described here, was able to take advantage of treatment that otherwise would not have been available to her. This complex treatment was enabled by the Osseointegration Foundation and other caring donors.
