The technology of the Strategic Implant® has expanded the indications for tooth and bone removal. This case report shows what kind of results are possible and how much the appearance of a patient can be changed within a few days if both teeth and bone are removed. The treatment option explained here could be considered by patients with a gummy smile. This treatment conflicts with the traditional thinking of dentists, who are educated to keep and maintain teeth. This can be compared to other fields of esthetic surgery where the patient's right to self-determination in medical decision-making has been established for a considerable period of time and is more frequent than in dentistry.
