Strategy to correct current problems and prevent future problems.
Possible implants, crowns, denture? I'm a GRINDER!!!
I would do crowns 1st , using gold or full contour zirconia (white) crowns, gold is the best but the most expensive ones, doesn't cause sensitivity however can cause that galvanic effect (metallic taste, light electric stimulus) if you have metal crowns or silver filling opposed to it on upper right jaw, the full contour zirconia are my 1st choice now days on grinder, because of they white and are very strong like metal.After i do crowns i'll put you on lower night guard.
Because its already your due, I would get a CT scan due to check how much bone structure you have for future dental implant, plan for implant surgery, for you i would do at least 4.5 mm in diameter implant, not thinner than that considering your bruxism. I would do 2 stage surgery, it means implant would stay under the gum for 4-5 months before making abutment & crown. Good LuckGeorge Sahakyan DDS
