Sample Cases

Case 1:
Upper and Lower Implant Supported Fixed Detachable

This is a case involved a patient with 16 remaining teeth with a guarded prognosis due to advanced periodontal disease.  The patient did not want a removable denture and wanted something that was going to be esthetic, functional, and long lasting. 

At the time of extraction implants were placed and a temporary healing denture was secured.  This left the patient with a full arch of teeth from day 1.  After 5 months of healing a definitive prosthesis was made which featured a core of milled titanium.

This is the titanium bar found inside the lower prosthesis. It adds strength, rigidity, and its design helps facilitate cleaning. Prosthetic teeth and gums are added in the lab.
