Do you have a missing space in your teeth that you want to fix? Do you want to be able to smile with confidence again and eat all the foods you truly enjoy without worrying? If you do then this restoration is great to retrieve the prosthesis without damaging it. Furthermore, if you have a collapsed bite or not a lot of distance between the upper and lower teeth, then this restoration is great for you.
How is the Procedure Done?
Once the dental implant is fully integrated into the bone and exposed the custom tooth can start to be made. Typically a small implant bridge can take about 3 visits!
- The first visit is taking a mold of your mouth to send to lab. At this visit, we also determine the shade of your tooth with YOUR approval. If you want any special request to be done to the tooth, please let us know.
- The second visit, typically 1 week after the mold, is to try the framework in. The abutments have to fit in the implants and the copings have to fit over the abutments. If everything fits, then it goes back to lab to place porcelain on the teeth.
- The third visit, typically 1 week after the framework try in, the bridge is inserted. Contacts and bite is checked to make sure maximum comfort is obtained. Shade is checked to make sure YOU are happy with the esthetics. The bridge is then cemented in. Remember, maintenance and cleaning is very important to the overall healthcare of your gums and teeth.
