Years of absence from routine care finally led to the state of teeth seen in the first photo. There was generalized severe gum disease and tooth decay, and no reasonable long-term treatment except for removal of all of the teeth. Dentures were made first, and then inserted on the same day that the teeth were extracted. Sedation with nitrous oxide and an oral sedative was used in addition to local anesthesia to provide a more pleasant experience for this patient. While the second photograph shows the conventional dentures that were constructed, this patient will go on to have implants placed to stabilize the lower denture. (N2O:O2 with triazolam sedation and proper monitoring throughout).
