How to get the patient on board to understand the risks and realistic options?



Meet the patient

As a young sales representative, Peter is seeing his livelihood put into question because he is embarrassed about smiling when talking to clients. He had two implants placed around three years ago and has noticed over the last 12 months that not only are his gums receding but a dark shadow has also developed behind the gums around the implants. Peter is frustrated by the situation and has been reading up about possible treatment, including gum grafts.
