Last Updated April 19, 2019
Reviewed By:  Dr. Peter Hunt

13 had a root fracture and buccal bone is gone.
Some background: Patient’s gumline shows at smile, female 50, thin biotype. I see two options:

  • Option 1: to extract, graft then place implant on the 13 and 15 Or
  • Option 2 Place implants on 14 and 15, graft bone + ctg, cantilever on 13. Night guard.
