dental implants fixed-removable crowns teeth bridges, hybrids, telescopic coping, telescope caps Retrofitting a new telescopic coping under a porcelain-metal bridge that is supported by dental implants and teeth. This repair will save the patient from having to replace a 12 tooth fixed removable dental bridge.
tooth implant, fixed removable bridge dental crown bridges, telescopic coping, telescope cement Telescopic Copings. They can be placed over teeth or dental implants to create parallelism. They can also be used to create a fixed removable dental crown bridge over teeth. The dental coping is cemented to the teeth with permanent dental cement. The dental crown bridge prosthesis may then be cemented over it with a temporary dental cement. This allows a fixed-removable dental prosthesis without the possibility of recurrent tooth decay.

Telescopes may be used to create parallelism among dental implants when fabricating the porcelain dental crown bridge. Read Yalisove & Dietz's textbook on telescopic prosthetic dentistry.
dental implants crown fixed-removable bridge caps, crowns teeth bridges, screw retained prosthesis Eight dental implants were placed in the mandible lower jaw. In the top four pictures, the implants and dental implant prosthesis are shown. The screws attach the dental crown bridge to the dental implants. The final four pictures show the final x-ray of the implants along with the final result of the teeth bridge in place.
dental Implants prosthetics, hybrid, attachments, meso bar clips implant denture prosthesis Four dental implants in the maxillary upper jaw connected with a meso bar. The tissue side of this fixed removable prosthesis is shown to demonstrate the clipping mechanism. This is an excellent way to provide dental implant teeth because the dentist always has easy access to the dental implants.

The six dental implants in this maxillary jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 1 of 4: Dental Implant Abutment connection). 1) A healing cap is being removed with a screwdriver. 2) A screwdriver is pushing a screw through the second stage abutment. 3) The second stage dental implant abutment is being connected to the first stage tooth implant. 4) The second stage abutment is now connected to the implant. How to pictures.
dental implants, second stage 2, parallel  abutments, connection, parallelism, how to pictures Second stage dental implant abutment connections. The six dental implants in this jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 2 of 4: Abutment parallelism). 1) Note the dental implants are not parallel. 2) A dental implant screwdriver is used to hold a second stage abutment. Notice the angle prepared extra-orally to create the parallelism. 3) and 4) You can see how the preparation in 2) is becoming parallel but there is still more drilling to be done. It is better to do the majority of this drilling extra-orally because of heat generation. You will need to keep track of the orientation of each second stage dental implant abutment when they are individually removed and replaced. Minor preparation may be accomplished intra-orally with light pressure and lots of water irrigation.
dental implants, second stage 2, teeth tooth implant abutments, connection, titanium frame framework Second stage dental implant abutment connections. The six dental implants in this maxillary jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 3 of 4: Lab work). 1) The working model. 2) A very light but strong titanium frame for the dental crown bridge. 3) & 4) The wax-up of the anterior six teeth on the titanium frame of the dental bridge. Note in 4) that occlusal openings in the titanium will allow easy access to the second stage dental implant screws if necessary. How to Pictures.

The six dental implants in this upper jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 4 of 4: The final dental bridge). The final dental bridge is acrylic fused to titanium. Note in 2) that occlusal openings in the titanium will allow easy access to the dental implant second stage screws if necessary. 3) The inserted dental crown prosthesis with the upper lip pulled back. 4) The inserted tooth crown prosthesis with a normal lip position.

Intramucosal Implants dental Implant denture prosthesis prosthetics snapinserts how to photos How to Pictures for Intramucosal Implants - Snapinserts. Intramucosal Insert Dental Implants are a simple and effective means to retain a maxillary complete or partial denture. These mushroom-shaped titanium implants are embedded into the acrylic underside of an implant denture. Special dental burs create soft tissue receptor sites in the palatal gum tissue that retains these implants. The technique is described in the Dental Articles section located above.


 Information about these dental photos

     In medicine and dentistry "left" and "right" are based upon the orientation of the patient's body and not how they appear in a photograph of a smile.  For example, a reference to the upper left teeth will actually appear to be on the right side when viewing a picture of the face and similarly an upper right tooth will appear to be on the left side.

     Many words in dentistry like oral and mouth have a similar meaning and are frequently used together to help our readers find specific words they best understand.  This is particularly important because a majority of our visitors are from countries where English is not their primary language.  Maxilla or maxillary refer to the upper jaw.  Mandible or mandibular refer to the lower jaw.

     There are many other similar word combinations used throughout this website because our pages are read by patients and dentists.  A few of the most common are discussed here.  Tooth decay, tooth cavity and dental caries all mean the same thing.  Tooth, teeth and dental are also frequently interchanged as in teeth veneers or dental veneer laminate.  Oral rehabilitation and dental reconstruction mean smile makeover.  The word for x-ray may be used with or without a hyphen (this is true for other words too) and can also be called a radiograph.
