In This case my Patient (15 yr) lost her teeth because of accident. At this age implant is not possible as body grows. If i place the implant at this age after few yearstooth remains at upper level than her adjucent teeth. Like natural teeth, implanted tooth doesnot move with the growth of her jaw. If its done it creates discripancy. Since front teeth were missing it will be life long which is difficult to correct. So i advised my patient to wait till age of 18 after that those teeth can be replaced with implants . The only disadvantage of not doing implant immediately that bone shrinks after tooth loss. This loss is because of loss of active pressure from teeth which maintains health of bone in both width and height wise. Implants once place generate pressure on bone and maintain dimension of bone surrounding it, maintaining its normal form and shape. It is same as that of natural tooth.
When this girl comes to me after few years that time i have to do bone grafting to replace missing bone. After tooth extraction missing tooth place looses bone faster. Its more in upper jaw as compare to lower , as upper jaw has more soft bone . I informed her all thses things as patient is college going girl she wanted fixed solution for her teeth. She decided to go for ceramic fused to metal kind of Bridge. As patient was not happy with the length of teeth, i reduced it according to her suggestion.
