Carlyle is a retired physician/administrator from an Ivy League institution whose daughter advised him to seek me out. During his long career, he was unable to make the commitment in time necessary to fix his teeth. This was a full mouth rehabilitation case that required the help of a periodontist and endodontist. The periodontist took out the decayed teeth, healed the gums and placed multiple implants. The endodontist saved a critical tooth by ding root canal treatment. The bite was opened slightly and all the upper teeth were restored. We were able to stage this case so that Carlyle never had to wear any removable devices during treatment. He remains very happy with the result and is always smiling.
