This video on Dental Implants: Trying in the bridge frame. 5 of 5 was created in our NYC dental implants office.
I’m going to re-insert the temporary bridge over the upper three implants. Notice on the buccal side of each implant I have a single dot, a double dot and a triple dot, so when they are removed, there is no way that I will confuse one abutment with the other. This is a passive friction fit here, so it does not require cement. The temporary bridge, which is made of acrylic (plastic), provides the patient with fixed, non-removable teeth while the final porcelain bridge is being made.
