Dental implants and new face for gunshot victim

Pearl Dental Clinic
News Categories

Dental implants are part of a range of surgeries that are helping an American mother get over an accident.

Chrissy Steltz was shot in the face aged 16 and lost her eyes, nose and part of her skull.

Now 27, she has a baby son and used to wear a sleeping mask to hide her injuries because she did not want him to be scared of her appearance.

But she was able to take the mask off recently after a pioneering team of surgeons gave her dental implants, bone and skin grafts and a new prosthetic face.

The first near-total face transplant in America was performed in 2008 in Cleveland, but Ms Steltz’s doctors decided against this procedure because she had lost around two-thirds of her face.

She was in a coma for six weeks after the attack and said she wanted the prosthesis and implants so her son could “grow to know his mum looking like a regular person versus a sleep shade”.
