Anymore i just open up the bite. It's not like you're altering an acceptable bite. I know it's a no no, but I'm old and tired of trying to convince the clueless and greedy to act responsibly. Their job is done once the critical wallet exractectomy is successful.That looks like a normal day. So many that have 'deep bites' and have had to have holes in them to 'keep them out of occlusion'.
One even had permanent indentations in her rugae from her lower ants hitting there being the only chewing area.
Crazy that people wait to these points to think it might be time to do something.
FFS, how does this one manage to find a way out of the bathroom? Why do these idiots always leap into **** they're clueless about?View attachment 34988I ended up convincing the doctor to use the 30 degree abutments on the premolars. I thought that they did a pretty good job. These were Straumann abutments and they had a lever on them with a knurled handle. Back up a day...
doc “ do I just break these off?”
Me “ I’m fairly certain that they will just unscrew.”
Doc “ patient is in the chair, I’m cutting them off in ten minutes.”
me calls Strauman and 6 minutes later the assistant calls me to say that they unscrewed. Lol
