CEREC Implant Bridge Replacement- Melbourne, FL
The patient presented with an old bridge on her lower right that was placed many years ago. During an exam with Dr. Patel, he found extensive decay under the bridge causing the two remaining teeth to be un-restorable. A CBCT (cone beam ct scan) was taken and revealed that the patient was a good candidate for implants. After removing the old bridge, Dr. Patel extracted the teeth and placed bone grafts at both sites, due to there being insufficient bone to support the future implants. Over the next 3 months the patient was seen to monitor healing until the implants were placed and then subsequent appointments were made during the next 2 months to again monitor healing and check implant stability. Using our CEREC unit, Dr. Patel was able to fabricate and place the implant bridge in the same day. The patient continues to be seen for her routine care in our office.More
