Case Histories

Dental Implants / Implant-supported denture

Before                              After

Before dental implants by Evanston Dentist      After dental implants by Evanston Dentist

Before

Our patient, a 70 year old male, had worn a lower denture partial for years. Because of the wear and tear on soft and hard tissues in the lower jaw (not unusual for long term denture wearers), the patient sustained considerable bone resorption. His remaining lower teeth were severely deteriorated.

Pain became unbearable as the denture created increasing pressure on the mandibular nerve. The patient eventually was forced to stop using a lower denture. Soon after, because of eating difficulty, the patient began to lose considerable weight.

Treatment

When the patient first presented in our office, Dr. Marinic was able to determine that the patient could be a candidate for a specialized implant system that would take the best advantage of his unique jawbone structure. Some areas of the mandible were healthy and had sufficient bone material that could support a custom implant solution.

Dr. Marinic surgically located the delicate mandibular nerve and was able to develop specific treatment methods that eliminated additional risk for damaging this critical nerve tissue.

Dr. Marinic extracted the remaining teeth in the patient's lower jaw. Implants were placed in healthy areas of the jaw. Since a specialized extraction procedure was used that did not further compromise the patient's bone structures, a total of four implants were placed, enabling the fitting of an implant secured denture

After a three month healing period, the patient returned to have a specialized impression taken so that Dr. Marinic could specially craft an implant-supported denture that would meet all of his needs. The specifications were taken digitally and sent to our in-office lab to manufacture a titanium framework for the prosthesis lab that would match the implant and jaw structure comfortably.

When the prosthetic base was completed, Dr. Marinic fit teeth to the structure, and had the patient try it out for phonetics, esthetics, and function. When he was sure that the teeth would fit and function perfectly, Dr. Marinic processed the teeth in our in-house laboratory to perfectly color-match the patient's smile. The new teeth were then permanently attached to the implant abutments.


After

When his new teeth were placed, the patient looked at his new smile, which now provided normal support for the cheeks and lip structures. He said "Maybe now I can get a kiss!"

The patient was thrilled with his new teeth, his appearance and his renewed ability to eat just about anything he wanted.

Smile Makeover: Implants, Crowns and Porcelain Veneers

After

Before:

Our patient, a "50 something" successful Cook County area businesswoman, had a high visibility profession that involved routine contact with business executives. She was becoming self conscious about her smile. Older restorations including gold onlays, porcelain with metal crowns, composite veneers and porcelain with metal bridges had all begun to fail or show signs of significant, yet normal wear.

Porcelain was fracturing off and certain wear factors reflecting a the development of a poor bite occlusion relationship. Overuse of teeth whitening compounds were affecting both her gum tissues and tooth enamel, causing additional problems of tooth sensitivity.

Treatment:

After consulting with the patient and providing her with several different treatment choices, it was decided that all restorative products and procedures would incorporate the use of premium porcelain materials. Her smile makeover included 10 veneers, 3 dental implants, and multiple crowns.

After:

Not only does our patient have great looking teeth... but she is now able to smile more normally. Notice how the upper lip now travels up further, revealing a broader smile.

Smiling with confidence is now effortless for our patient. She senses it has improved her on the job functioning as a sales executive and has caused many of her acquaintances to comment on how dazzling her smile is.

When Bette retired from teaching a few years ago, she knew that it was time for her to pursue her dream of an acting career. She started taking acting classes and performing in local theatre productions, but she felt that what she really needed to boost her confidence was a smile makeover.

Dr. Marinic was very happy to help Bette achieve her goals with high-quality porcelain veneers. He designed them carefully to make sure that they would look beautiful and natural.

Bette loves her new smile! She's been in several television commercials now, and is living her dream of being a professional actress.




When Bob first came to see Dr. Marinic, he had not been to the dentist for a while, and his teeth and gums were showing the signs of that neglect. Dr. Marinic worked with Bob to put together a treatment plan that would restore his teeth and gums to a healthy, functional condition.

First, Dr. Marinic used laser gum therapy to restore Bob's gums to healthy function. Bob told us that he was surprised when the treatment didn't hurt.

Bob also underwent treatment to have his old amalgam (mercury) fillings safely replaced with tooth-colored, biocompatible fillings. His large inlays and onlays were replaced rapidly, using the CEREC milling machine right here in our office.

When Bob's two front teeth could not be saved, Dr. Marinic restored his smile with a perfectly crafted bridge.

Bob's been very pleased with his dental care, and also with the way in which Dr. Marinic has helped him to understand the entire process. Says Bob, "I have learned from Dr. Marinic and his staff to take better care of my teeth, so that they should last another 30 years."




Evelyn has a beautiful smile, and Dr. Marinic has been very happy to help her keep it healthy and beautiful over the last twenty–six years.

When she first came to see Dr. Marinic, she had crowns on her top front teeth that she was not happy with, and crooked bottom teeth. Dr. Marinic replaced her top crowns with crowns that were the correctly-matched size and color, and used more crowns to help her straighten her bottom teeth.

When Evelyn cracked an incisor near the gumline, a crown was not an option. Dr. Marinic considered an implant to replace the tooth, but first checked Evelyn's medications. When her medications indicated that she was not a qualified candidate for implant surgery, Dr. Marinic instead gave Evelyn a permanent bridge. She was very happy with this restoration, saying, "Dr. Marinic is very conscious about both aesthetics and function. He is a perfectionist."
