first, we could do a removable partial. this is basically a denture that replaces a few teeth. the pros of this option are that it's non-invasive and has a lower cost than the other option. the second option, and the one the patient chose, is an implant bridge. working with our implant surgeon, dr. matt ficca a periodontist, we created a treatment plan for a four-unit bridge with three dental implant abutments.
below are the photos, including the photos from the lab case. as you can see, the outcome was highly aesthetic and improved the patient's function. implants are a highly desirable way to replace missing teeth as they have proven longevity and are not subject to dental decay.
