Here is a nice basic case to follow from beginning to end.
This man's upper molars on one side were in bad shape:
The teeth were extracted and replaced with three dental implants in my office in Burbank. He also had a deep cleaning.
The color denotes the size of the implants.
Standard abutments were able to be used rather than custom abutments. This helps reduce cost, but most implant surgeons don't know how to place implants to prevent having to use custom abutments.
He was really happy to have teeth again. He can eat anything he wants!
