This 3D animation video shows two different therapeutic options when a tooth fails. The first would be the placement of an implant with an implant-supported crown and the second would be to carve the two adjacent natural teeth and place a bridge with three crowns.
The video shows the fracture of a tooth, the upper right incisor and the consequent extraction of the root rest. Then shows the solution through a single dental implant and a supported implant crown. Next we see the preparation of the two adjacent teeth 21 and 12 and the placement of a 3-crown bridge. Over time, the lack of function in the 11 determines a loss of bone volume and a consequent collapse of the gingiva. In the 21 gingival retraction and caries appear under the prosthetic crown. Esto acaba con carie profunda de 21, fractura de la corona del 21 y extracción del mismo. In order to rehabilitate the area with a bridge over natural teeth, it is now necessary to carve tooth number 22 and to be able to make a 4-crown bridge supported by two natural roots. This implies a loss of bone and gingiva in the pontic area. The video ends with a final comparative image of the two treatments.
