Implant placement through an impacted canine
A 32-year-old female patient presents with mobile primary canines and requires implant therapy. The impacted canines are located where the implants need to be placed. Classical treatment requires the impacted teeth to be removed before implant placement. To avoid this invasive surgery, implants have been placed through the impacted teeth. This approach is unique and experimental; It does not belong to the corpus of accepted protocols. This treatment is part of a cohort of 25 patients that have been successfully treated with this new surgical protocol and followed-up for a period of up to 9 years.
