Our patient stated that he never wanted to see the dentist, and that he had neglected his teeth for years. When he first saw us, he had a broken front tooth, and swollen, bleeding gums. After spending some time with him, we were able to discuss his possibilities for treating the front tooth, and his overall dental health. He agreed that he needed to take better care of his teeth, and that he would like to improve his smile. We were able to do a bite analysis, and a mock-up design for him on stone models of his teeth to see what was possible. He chose to treat the one tooth which had always bothered him, and not do a full design, but he stated how grateful he was to understand the importance of having a healthy mouth. He now enjoys a healthier mouth, and he is grateful for saving his teeth. One tooth changed his outlook on his whole mouth!
