Are you missing more than one permanent tooth? Ask Dr. Joseph Fullmer if an implant-supported dental bridge in Heber, Utah, is right for you. Unlike a traditional dental bridge, this restoration is supported by dental implants, instead of dental crowns which are placed on your natural teeth.
Dr. Joseph Fullmer will examine your smile prior to treatment. Impressions and X-rays will be taken, and our surgeon will review your medical and dental history with you. If you are a candidate for the procedure, two or more dental implant posts will be surgically placed in your jawbone. Your jawbone will be given time to heal and fuse with the implant posts. Abutments are then screwed onto the dental implant posts. A series of connected crowns (a dental bridge) is then made specifically for your smile. Dr. Joseph Fullmer will match the shade of your restoration to color of your natural teeth. The restoration is attached to the abutment once it is complete.
