Functional and Aesthetic rehabilitation
This young man was 24 years old when he presented with a poorly fitting upper bridge. He was complaining of bad breath and taste combined with jaw joint discomfort.
On examination we found that the full upper bridge had a very poor fit with lots of plaque/food accumulation. The bite was also not ideal which most probably was causing his jaw pain. He also needed a general cleaning and oral hygiene instructions due to poor brushing habits.
In due course the upper bridge was removed and replaced with proper porcelain/metal crown and bridge work. The patient reported an immediate improvement of his bite, aesthetics and jaw pains. He was also relieved that with our intervention his bad breath was eliminated.
