Implantología dental avanzada y estética facial. Advanced implantology & facial aesthetics. Dr. Pablo Furelos.
When Elena was 3 years old, Dr. Furelos decided to resect part of her maxillary bone due to a tumorous process. Years later, when Elena was 17, the treatment was finished by a bone graft in order to place fixed teeth over the dental implants. She studies medicine.
At an early age, Elena was only 3 years old, when she was diagnosed of a tumor in the upper maxilar bone.
Proved to be a cystic tumor called ameloblastoma. The tumor was removed along with a significant amount of maxillary bone, which is necessary to prevent a recurrence of the tumor.
At this early ages this jawbone includes the germs of permanent teeth, so this leads to an inevitable lack of them in the future.
When she reached adulthood a reconstruction of her jaw was undertaken with bone graft powder. They were then placed 3 implants that would support the teeth that had been destroyed by the tumor. An implant in the right hemimaxilla was also placed to support the congenital absence of a tooth.
She tells us about her experience at the end of the process. Happy with the progress, of course.
The implant surgery performed by trained hands makes the placement of dental implants to be possible even in the most extreme situations.
