Fabiola had an existing bridge that did not fit well and affected her ability to eat. At the exam, Dr. Michaelson found that the teeth used to support the bridge weren’t healthy and had cavities. This left a broad area in the front of her smile to consider. She needed something more stable than the type of bridge she already had, which meant that a removable appliance such as a partial denture would not be her best option. Dr. Michaelson advised removing the unhealthy teeth followed by a time of healing before placing three dental implants. Once healed, the dental implants would be used to support a screwed-in bridge. Although this process was not instant gratification as many of Dr. Michaelson’s services are, Fabiola was pleased to have a smile with teeth that were both stable for eating as well as beautiful.
