Typical Jack-O-Lantern Smile seen in a Mzee patient here at Kijabe. His teeth were knocked out 5 years ago.
Hakuna Shieda (No Problem). Even 5 years later from out of his pocket came his original incisors.
The patient show me how he presses his incisors into position for eating and talking...a perfect fit. Like a Velcro tooth held in by the lips, adjacent tooth contacts, and gingival contours. So how do I answer the unimaginable ethical dilemmas of our specialty....To make or not to make a partial denture?
