Nikki was a delight to work with. From several treatment options available, she chose the option of permanent implant supported bridges. See below for detailed photos and a look at the complete process.
Note the green and purple lines. The green lines are where healthy bone levels should be. The purple line is where her bone level actually was. Saving any of Nikki's teeth is not looking good.
**A few weeks after Nikki's surgery new technology, a CAD program, was made available where the implant placement is designed in a computer, the design is emailed to a lab on the east coast. They construct a guide that we now use to place the implants. Invasive surgery like Nikki had to have is no longer necessary.
So successful is the new technology, that many of our patients have reported that they took no pain medication after the appointment and even went out to dinner after their surgical placement.
Nikki's treatment from start to finish took about nine months. Today we can often cut that time to as little as four to six months. The amount of time is determined by the individual healing requirements.
