Work in progress

I’ve shown this young guy before.  We are just picking away at it a bit at a time.  The most rewarding thing is this patient has listened to everything about home care and prevention and is looking after things beautifully. See how the gums are pink and healthy and the remaining decay is so clearly visible.  Without good home care, nothing will last.

This was the first day we met.

The front 2 right teeth we managed to avoid exposing the nerve in the centre of the tooth despite severe decay.  They have temporary fillings to keep things stable until we sort out the remaining teeth.  The 2 teeth further back have permanent composite resin restorations placed.

This was today before we started to tackle the upper eye tooth and tooth behind.  So far this has been four visits at about $300 a trip.  We are just going at a rate our patient can afford.  I’ll keep future updates as I get time.

Here is the latest.
