Video: Immediate Function (One Day) Fixed Bridge
Cemented bridgework is a popular tooth replacement option to treat the loss of a single tooth or even multiple teeth. Bacteria and decay however cause significant failure rates. Facing total edentulation of the upper jaw, this female patient, wishing to avoid dentures, chose a fixed bridge as her treatment of choice, using immediate function implants.
Watch this VERY GRAPHIC 7+ minute video showing the removal of the failed bridge followed up with multiple extractions, tissue grafting and implant placements.... all completed in one treatment session. Sedation support services were provided to assure patient comfort throughout the treatment.
