Never give up when you want to save a Tooth !!!!!
The importance of never giving up and to always look for an expert opinion and to do everything possible to save a tooth
………Approximately 3 years ago a patient that I had treated more than 10 years ago came to the office almost 7 years after a bicycle accident. He complained of pain in the incisor region and I sent him to an endodontist specialist and he said that the tooth was suffering from occlusal trauma. The patient decided to go look for a second opinion since he did not want to wear orthodontic appliances again….and was told that the tooth had a fissure, that it had a bad prognosis and should be extracted.
I was determined to save his tooth and sent the patient back to Dr Borja Zabalegui (endodontist) and his brother Jon(periodontist)from Bilbao and both said that there was NO FISSURE and this was a typical case of OCCLUSAL TRAUMA.
THE PATIENT WAS FINALLY CONVINCED and we decided to place 6 brackets, recover the torque and eliminate the trauma. Here are the images one and two years post treatment.
Thanks to the correct diagnosis the tooth was saved

Featured clinical cases

A good result is always preceded by a good diagnosis and ours, are exhaustive. Orthodontics cannot be understood without taking into account the entire ectomatognathic system; teeth are just one of all the structures to consider.

FACE International meeting

It’s so nice to announce our FACE Revolution International Meeting. After a break of almost 18 months, we are again very excited about organizing the next FACE Revolution Meeting.

We are preparing it with great care and enthusiasm. You can’t imagine our desire to meet our friends and have a face-to-face meeting. The screens and online courses are fine, but there is nothing like gathering, enjoying the friendship and seeing each other again.
I want to thank you very much for your patience, since we had to postpone the meeting twice, but trust us it was worth the wait.

We hope to see you in Madrid and do not forget that “treatment mechanics is still the key to success for excellent orthodontics: with or without aligners”.
