So after almost 3 years into this process of reversing extraction orthodontics, I get my braces off and get ready for Ceraroot implants. I visited the oral surgeon few weeks ago and we did another 3D scan, he says this is an ideal case, the upper left bicuspid space has opened up where as it was very tight before.
Ceraroot implants are ceramic type of implants and I am using their new models that just came out 1-2 years ago which is slimmer requiring 6 mm and it has more grooves on it so it is sturdier than the past models. I was told oral surgeon has plenty of space for these implants with 1 mm of space on either side, so he was thoroughly impressed at my orthodontist. He said the surgery will be piece of cake, where as before back in December (6 months ago) he said on the uppers he could do it but it was very tight and he will be sweating.
Oral surgeon comments I have great bone density (I do believe this is from chewing)
and there will be no bone graft needed.
I did not have any root absorption (My daily use of Acceledent may have played a part in this)
We had to get new molds of my mouth for the surgeon since they make special kits to do the implants accurately guided by the computer and to make new retainers, before I sent the new molds off to the surgeon I took pictures of them and now I came back to my parents this weekend and found molds of my old mouth before adult expansion. And I was pretty shocked just how much my mouth had grown and expanded from age 23 to 26.
