Many self-treatment dental procedures have been reported in the literature including extractions and fillings.
This case report describes the clinical procedure of dental implantation and subsequent prosthetic treatment that a dentist performed to him starting from the local anesthetic injection and finishing with cementation of a fixed prosthesis. Ethical and safety guidelines and standards of related procedures of the dental profession need reviewing to take in consideration controversial aspects of self-treatment.
