Dental Implant Treatment for a Patient With Ectodermal Dysplasia & Cleft Palate
Monique was born with ectodermal dysplasia as well as cleft lip and palate. She spent her childhood and young adult years undergoing 53 surgeries to correct the cleft palate, and reconstruct her eyes and ears. She had failing dental implants that supported a poorly fitting overdenture. Following the diagnostic evaluation at Pi Dental Center, it was determined that she needed Teeth in a Day™ with zygomatic implants in order to ensure successful implant anchorage and an ideal prosthetic smile. The CM prosthesis gave her a natural-looking and attractive smile. A plastic surgeon completed the amazing transformation.
Monique says, “On this day a year ago my sis Mechelle’lae and I were boarding a plane to fly across the country and meet the amazing people who’ve forever changed my life! This is a day I’ll never forget. I’m so thankful for everything you all have done for me! Thank you! Daryl, Jake, Julie, Andrea, Jeannine, Amy, Allan, Joyce Evans, Shane, Stephen Balshi and most importantly Dr. Thomas Balshi & Mrs. Balshi! The entire Prosthodontics Intermedica staff is amazing! I’ve never met people so compassionate & dedicated. I love you all!”
