Image Photo Description
obamacare, dental malpractice, bad dentistry, bad dentist, ACA, This is an example of less than ideal dentistry. 1) There is a cavity under this crown. 2) There is a cavity under this adjacent crown. The root canal filling (arrows 3, 4 & 10) does not extend to the end of the tooth root (arrows 5, 6 & 11). 7) & 8) X-ray evidence of an active root canal infection in the jaw. Pain in this tooth was the reason for this new patient visit. 9) A poor-fitting prefabricated post. The molar tooth will likely need extraction and replacement with a dental implant and new crown. The premolar tooth will need root canal retreatment, a new post, possible gum surgery and a new crown.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth broken  tooth Fracture chipped cracked abscess braces Orthodontic teeth braces complications. 1) & 2) This patient presented with a hopeless upper front tooth #9 under an unattractive dental crown. This tooth was maintained for one year while her teeth were being orthodontically aligned - moved with braces. The #9 tooth root was then extracted from under the crown to allow the gum and bone to heal with about eight months remaining to complete her braces. 3) & 4) This rootless crown #9 is being held in place only by the orthodontic bracket and wire. This patient preferred to keep this unattractive crown during her braces treatment to minimize simultaneous cosmetic changes, but a cosmetic temporary dental crown could also have been used during this time. A dental implant will be placed about three months following the extraction. The second stage implant connection will coincide with the braces removal.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped cracked dental implant surgery Single tooth dental implant placement in the first premolar site after extracting a hopeless cracked tooth where the surrounding gums were not infected. The lower left second premolar position already has a dental implant as well. 1) - 2). Pre-op photos show the badly chipped tooth, clinically and radiographically. 3) The tooth socket is exposed and ready for dental implantation. 4) Photo of the extracted tooth. 5) A Replace titanium threaded dental implant ready for oral surgery insertion. 6) The implant was inserted into mandible using a slow speed handpiece dental drill. 7) Implant covered and surrounding gum tissue sutured using 3-0 chromic gut dissolvable sutures. 8) Post-op xray.
hopeless tooth extraction Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped cracked failure extract gums This patient presented with a tooth crown that had broken off a molar tooth that previously had root canal therapy. Preparation - drilling - into the pulp chamber revealed extensive subgingival decay - tooth cavity below the gums - and furcation involvement. This tooth should be extracted.
hopeless dentistry extraction, non-restorable Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped cracked gums Calculus - calcified plaque - on an extracted molar tooth. This is a bacterial colony and source of infection in your gums and the rest of your body.
hopeless failure extract x-ray, xrays pulp chamber Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped cracked gums Extract this tooth. It is broken and cracked below the gums. The inner pulp chamber is filled with tooth decay cavity.
hopeless tooth, dentistry, extract tooth,  non-restorable, Broken Teeth Fracture chipped cracked This patient presented with a loose upper fixed porcelain metal teeth bridge and asked for it to be recemented. There is obvious dental decay on the teeth abutments around composite post & cores. There was not a reasonably established occlusion for this dental bridge. This needs comprehensive care. The patient was referred elsewhere for dental care because she insisted on keeping that bridge.
hopeless internal resorption external tooth teeth extraction Broken Fracture root canal Internal and external resorption in a maxillary molar tooth. This tooth is hopeless and should be extracted.
Broken Teeth Fracture chipped cracked front tooth loose dental mobility mobile,  fremitus, diastema The upper right central incisor (#8) was very loose and the patient wanted to try to save it. Pictures show how to try to save a possibly Hopeless tooth. 1) Upper right central incisor (#8) has extruded - grown longer - and moved labially (toward the lip) and a tooth gap space has occurred between the front teeth. 2) This x-ray shows severe bone loss. The black dotted line shows the location for a potential root resection and root tip extraction if necessary. Scaling was performed after the splint was placed and the patient will return in three months to reevaluate periodontal gum healing and the potential need for the root resection. 3) Palatal photo of the splint between teeth #'s 7 - 9. 4) Post-op view. Same day. Notice the diastema - tooth gap space - was closed with bonding to hide the splint and the incisal edge of #8 was reduced.
tooth extraction, hopeless teeth, surgical, oral surgery, dental Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped Before and after pictures of a surgical extraction of a hopeless upper first molar tooth. 1) Tooth #14 with extensive subgingival dental caries - tooth decay. 2) Soft tissue elevation. 3) The tooth socket after the extraction. 4) Sutures.
tooth trauma, dental caps, dentistry accidents, crowns, bridge, complications, hopeless extraction Extraction of a hopeless broken tooth cracked during an accident. 1) The initial x-ray showing the three teeth bridge and severe damage to the second premolar tooth. 2) The second molar showing furcation involvement and thickening of the periodontal ligament space around the mesial root. The second premolar and the mesial root of the second molar were extracted. 3) Intra oral photo following healing. The patient was informed regarding the long span and declined dental implants. He wanted a new fixed teeth bridge anyway. 4) Radiographic healing of the distal root of the second molar after six weeks. The lesson here is the value of salvaging individual roots of molar teeth.
surgical tooth extraction, periapical pathology, hopeless teeth, dental radiolucency, x-ray gums The top radiograph x-ray shows severe periapical pathology around the mesial and distal roots of this hopeless mandibular molar tooth. The bottom xray shows the same location after tooth extraction.

teeth extraction, periapical pathology dentistry, hopeless tooth, dental radiolucency, hemisection Extraction pictures of tooth #30 due to severe periapical pathology - infection. 1) Sectioning - cutting - of the mesial and distal tooth roots. 2) Removal of the mesial root. 3) & 4) The tooth extraction site.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth, tooth  extraction phobic, dental makeover,  abutments, diagnosis Full mouth oral reconstruction of a dental phobia patient with many hopeless teeth. Initial visit pictures. It is important to determine what teeth, if any, may be saved at least temporarily. It is easier for a patient to emotionally adjust to a temporary prosthesis that has at least some amount of retention provided by natural tooth abutments. The teeth chosen were #6, 11, 22 and 28. The decision to fabricate a removable immediate partial denture, rather than a fixed lab-processed temporary bridge, was determined by the particular weakness in the gums around tooth #28. The patient was informed that the immediate prosthesis was to be used for the healing phase and that the four remaining abutments, particularly #28, might be subsequently extracted.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth, tooth  extraction phobic, diagnosis, dentures, tooth abutments gums Full mouth oral rehabilitation of a dental fear anxiety patient with many hopeless teeth and severe infection of the gums. Initial before and after pictures: two visits.
Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped cracked Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth, tooth extraction dental A hopeless tooth that should be extracted. 1) Picture of tooth #18 shows gingival gum tissue growing into the space previously occupied by tooth structure. 2) Xray shows extensive dental caries - tooth decay - extending below the surrounding gums and bone.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth, tooth  extraction, anxiety, dentistry phobic,  treatment plan gums This oral reconstruction involved the extraction of many hopeless broken cracked teeth and severe infection of the gums.
Hopeless Non-Restorable Teeth, selective  tooth extraction Broken Tooth Teeth Fracture chipped crack Selective extraction of hopeless teeth during an upper reconstruction. The initial treatment plan considered saving #'s 6, 7 and 9 while extracting #'s 5 and 8. During the surgery, #5 was considered more stable than #6 so #5 was retained and #6 was extracted. The retained teeth will be used to support a fixed temporary bridge until subsequent dental implants heal.

 

 Information about these dental photos

     In medicine and dentistry "left" and "right" are based upon the orientation of the patient's body and not how they appear in a photograph of a smile.  For example, a reference to the upper left teeth will actually appear to be on the right side when viewing a picture of the face and similarly an upper right tooth will appear to be on the left side.

     Many words in dentistry like oral and mouth have a similar meaning and are frequently used together to help our readers find specific words they best understand.  This is particularly important because a majority of our visitors are from countries where English is not their primary language.  Maxilla or maxillary refer to the upper jaw.  Mandible or mandibular refer to the lower jaw.

     There are many other similar word combinations used throughout this website because our pages are read by patients and dentists.  A few of the most common are discussed here.  Tooth decay, tooth cavity and dental caries all mean the same thing.  Tooth, teeth and dental are also frequently interchanged as in teeth veneers or dental veneer laminate.  Oral rehabilitation and dental reconstruction mean smile makeover.  The word for x-ray may be used with or without a hyphen (this is true for other words too) and can also be called a radiograph.
