Guided Surgery: Upper Teeth In A Day
fixed bridge in a single appointment.
This denture patient had a CAT Scan of her upper jaw. We applied a computer program to that scan to design implant locations, and a clear guide to be used in the mouth to place the implants without making any incisions. The guide was secured in her mouth and the implants placed.
The computer program also designed her fixed bridge in advance, and we made it in our own in-house laboratory. After we placed the implants, the bridge was screwed into place.
