It Must Be Horrible Without An Implant
Mrs. Tong, 74 years old, is a typical dental patient. She is afraid of dental treatment. At the same time, she has several fillings (white stuffs in Fig.1-3). Eight years ago, one of the repaired teeth was too bad to be saved. It was replaced by an implant (Fig.1) and a crown (Fig.2). In the last 8 years, she has been able to eat normally. At the age of 74, she has almost a complete set of the teeth (Fig.3). Without this implant, her remaining repaired teeth may have been broken down.
