This discerning patient had missing teeth and did not have much upper jaw bone for normal implants. He elected to have 4 very long implants into his check-bones along with one normal length implant. A full-arch fixed temporary plastic bridge was placed very soon after implant surgery and he was soon smiling! Three months later a final full-arch fixed all-ceramic (metal-free) bridge was placed. His confidence and self-esteem rocked to the extent that he is now proceeding with lower implant crowns to replace his missing back teeth there! 😃 Thanks to Taka, dental technician at DT Design and Yuji Hoshi, formerly of Dental Studio Mission, Auckland for excellent laboratory work.
