Fabiola: Implant Bridge

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.
First Class Environment
First Class Environment

Dr. Gary Michaelson came very highly recommended to me as both a qualified general and cosmetic dentist. He put me at ease on my first visit, and his office staff was so professional, patient, friendly and always available to make sure I was comfortable.
This is truly a “first class” environment.
My dental situation presented some special challenges, but Dr. Michaelson carefully discussed all options and the steps required to reach the best outcome possible. My treatment plan required veneers, crowns, and implants in order to reach my goal. I stopped being concerned when I realized he was a perfectionist, an “artist”, who cared about the end result as much as I did.
And the change was phenomenal! It’s unbelievable when I see how much better and yet - how natural my teeth look. Now I am so pleased with my smile, my more youthful appearance, and my improved dental health.. I can honestly say that the results exceeded my expectations.
