Bridge case of the day

This patient presented with a broken 25 year old bridge replacing a missing front tooth. I re-prepped the teeth, digitally scanned the impression, computer designed a new bridge, 3D printed it out and cemented it in. Totally awesome!!!

Dental implant case of the day

This patient presented with a broken off upper right canine tooth. We extracted the remaining tooth root,  placed an immediate titanium implant and restored with a zirconium abutment and porcelain crown. Very nice lady, fun case with beautiful results :-)))

Treating snoring and sleep apnea

This appliance is what I make to prevent snoring and treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It works by opening the bite and moving the lower jaw forward to increase airway space allowing the person to breath better.
