This healthy 68-year-old female presented with a vertically fractured 15 and missing left mandibular posterior teeth. The 15 was removed for the existing full upper arch bridge by raising a palatial flap, and Bond Bone grafting placed in the socket. Implants were placed in the 44 & 47 region to support a 47 to 44 bridge. 
Two years later everything looks stable and healthy.
A 45-year-old healthy female suffered trauma to her 22 & 23 and both teeth were vertically fractured and infected. The 22 & 23 were extracted, immediate dental implants were placed and temporarily restored with an immediate splinted 22/23 screw-retained bridge. The X-rays and photo taken 6 years later, show the area to be stable and healthy, with separate definitive crowns.
This healthy 35-year-old lady had seen Dr Latcham five years previously for implant replacement of her 21 and the repair of her 22, which underwent a traumatic incident. Unfortunately, on her return she presented with an infection on the mesiolabial of her 22. A flap was raised and confirmed that the 22 had a vertical root fracture. The 21 crown was removed, the 22 tooth was removed, and the 22 socket was grafted with non-resorbable 4Bone grafting which was covered with BondBone. A laser welded titanium framed/composite immediate 21,22 temporary bridge was placed. The final photo was taken 4 weeks following the surgery.
This healthy 60-year-old male returned 10 years after his 36 implant had been restored. He was suffering from erosion which had resulted in his previously integrated implant crown being placed under excessive occlusal load and subsequent loss of integration. The implant was removed and a wider implant with the same prosthetic connection was then very carefully immediately placed in the exact same alignment, rotation and depth so the existing crown could be used on the replacement implant. Three months later, once this new implant has integrated and the initial crown was replaced onto the new implant.
This 60-year-old healthy lady presented with a failed 41 implant/ crown that had fallen out of her mouth due to massive associated infection. This failed Tiunite fixture was associated with a similar bone-loss pattern that was often seen with failed Hydroxyapatite-coated fixtures. The patient was very keen to have a new implant placed with an immediate temporary crown. Dr Latcham explained that this was very challenging due to the amount of grafting necessary and that the new fixture would need to be deeply placed, the patient agreed and as the follow-up photographs and X-rays show,  he was able to successfully achieve this. The patient will be now referred to her restorative dentist for a definitive implant crown which will be constructed using a very wide titanium collar due to the deeply placed fixture.

A healthy 50-year-old male was referred to Benowa Mansions Periodontal Practice for an immediate implant replacement of a hopeless 41 with a titanium-based immediate temporary crown. Note the ideal bone level related to the steep proximal emergence profile of the temporary titanium abutment. Unfortunately, the restorative dentist placed a titanium-based Zirconium definitive crown, the non-ideal proximal emergence profile required with this crown has resulted in bone loss and subsequent gingival recession. .

A healthy 29-year-old patient was referred to Benowa Mansions Periodontal Practice for implant replacement of his hopeless 11 which had a long term chronic infection after trauma, 10 years previously.
The after photographs and X-ray were taken 3 years later. .

A healthy 38 year old male presented with a hopeless 22 with a large chronic periapical infection, and his 21 was suffering from a vertical root fracture. 
A single implant was placed on the 21 region, supporting a 21,22 screw retained implant bridge. The 22 socket was filled with non-resorbable 4Bone grafting to maintain the anatomy of this pontic area.
Five years later an very acceptable result has been achieved.

A healthy 53-year-old patient was referred to Benowa Mansions Periodontal Practice for implant therapy. She presented with a history of chronic dental pain related to her root caries rate and localized advanced periodontal destruction of her lower anterior teeth. Six implants were placed and restored. The patient has been pain free since treatment was completed. 
This case demonstrates that dental implant therapy is the treatment of choice for heavily restored patients with a high caries rate. .

This healthy 51-year-old patient presented with an infected gingival epulis and advanced peri-implantitis associated with the 21 dental implant. The implant was placed 16 years previously at another practice. The patient smoked heavily for the first 10 years after the implant was placed and he had not returned for a prophylaxis for the past 16 years. 
In addition, the patient was suffering from untreated acid reflux and significant erosion of the adjacent incisors and as a consequence the 21 implant was suffering significant occlusal load. Indirect composite build ups were placed on the adjacent anterior teeth to restore the erosion and correct the load on the 21 implant crown and the 21 peri-implantitis was surgically treated. Under Amoxil and Flagyl cover the 21 infective tissue was removed, the exposed surface of the implant was cleaned with an airflow and disinfected with minomyacin paste. The lost bone was replaced with 0.5cc of NovaBone calcuim sulphate graft material prior to suturing. .

In 2009 a healthy 52 year old male presented with missing 44, 45 & 46 and unfavourable anatomy in the 45 & 46 region for placement of implants. He was also missing his maxillary right premolars and molars plus was he did not want any grafting. Hence, a single wide, long implant was placed in the 44 region and it was restored with a 44,45 distal cantilever bridge with the 45 Pontic molar sized. A single long implant was placed in the 17 region and restored with a crown with a large mesial rest seat, the 13 was crowned with labial and lingual slots and a 13 to 17 mesial, metal/ceramic bridge constructed. Nine years later both bridges are still perfectly intact and the implant bone levels ideal.
Obviously the occlusion was constructed to canine protected and the patient does not parafunction.

Eight years ago this 64-year-old lady presented with a failing upper arch rehabilitation, with a hopeless 23, which was removed and replaced with an immediate implant and temporary restoration. The patient had previously had a large block graft removed from her mental region by her former OMFS. This grafting failed and the patient was completely against having further grafting, although she wanted a fixed upper implant bridge. 
Eight years later the patient now has a successful fixed upper arch bridge on the minimal bone available and a lower right hand side removable unilateral lower denture with no visible clasps. The bone levels around all seven implants are stable and the hopeless 28 will be removed when it causes symptoms. .
