We will not compromise

We start with your The Trial Smile™ which is a non-removable, rigid, yet shock absorbent material that protects the newly placed implants. The final Natural Teeth™ are then made from Zirconia (a durable, highly esthetic and bacteria resistant surface). We never use Zirconia early on as it transmits force to the implants and can potentially disturb healing in the early stages.

ZERO compromise

Just 18 hours after implants are placed you will have a custom-crafted, fixed Trial Smile™ bridge. A few months later, you will have your Natural Teeth™. Why do we do it this way?

Protection

The Trial Smile™ bridge is strong (3x stronger than PMMA), so it splints implants together like a cast. In addition, the Trial Smile™ bridge is shock absorbent to help distribute forces to protect the healing implants.

Predictability

We could place a final zirconia bridge within a week after surgery but WE WON’T DO THAT! Zirconia has extreme rigidity and strength which makes it excellent after implants have healed. However, in the early stages, while the implants are integrating, zirconia can transmit excessive force to the healing implants which could disturb success in the early stages. 

Customizable

Wearing the Trial Smile™ bridge allows us the opportunity to re-assess the esthetics and function. Before committing to your final teeth we can make changes as needed. The final Natural Teeth™ bridge is then made from durable and highly esthetic zirconia with all of the changes incorporated. After all, this is a lifetime investment. 

Change happens

After implants are placed, the tissue shrinks as it heals. If you have extractions, the tissue shrinks even more. There is no way around it.

A gap routinely forms below the implant bridge after months of healing. If you have your final teeth from the start, this gap would stay there forever or get patched up with a filling material. This is typically just a temporary fix to your big investment.

Our solution is to replace your Trial Smile™ bridge after healing with a perfect tissue-fitting Natural Teeth™ zirconia bridge incorporating any esthetic or functional changes that are needed.

No bone? Natural Teeth FAST™ Zygoma.

If you have had periodontal disease that erodes your jawbone, or if you have been wearing a denture for years, the chances are that you have limited bone in your upper jaw. Dental implants need to have bone to anchor into, so patients historically have limited options. To avoid bone grafting and open the doors to a permanent Natural Teeth™ smile, we use one of the most advanced dental options in the world.

Zygoma and pterygoid implants bypass the areas in your upper jaw with limited bone and engage on the underside of your cheek. Now you can have immediate teeth, without bone grafting or long-healing times. To learn more click here.

As many as it takes

The All-on-4® procedure, as its name implies, uses 4 implants in each jaw to provide support to teeth. Patients typically require more implants to increase the support of permanent teeth. At Natural Teeth Implant Center, we plan the number of implants for your specific case depending on how many teeth are being replaced, the biting forces, and the quality of the bone. Whether it’s 4, 6, or even 8 implants, we only have one fee for our traditional implants. As many as it takes, no added costs.

As many implants as it takes

As many as it takes

Natural Teeth™ is engineered for the long-haul starting with the foundation. The traditional All-on-4™ method has just 4 implants per jaw. That may be the right plan for you but we often place more implants to increase the support for your permanent teeth. The number of implants required for your specific case depends on how many teeth are being replaced, the biting forces, and the quality of the bone. Whether it's 4, 6, or even 8 implants we only have one fee. As many as it takes, no added costs.

FAQs

The Trial Smile™ bridge is made from a lightweight yet strong resin that is 3X the strength of PMMA. It has a slight flex to absorb forces but rigid enough to splint the implants together for protection during healing.

The Natural Teeth™ bridge is made from titanium and zirconia. Your teeth will be extremely durable and highly esthetic. The hardness of the material makes it resistant to fracturing or chipping. The smooth, non-porous and biocompatible surface makes it resistant to stains and it won’t absorb odors or attract plaque and bacteria.

There are three big reasons. Really big reasons. Don’t settle on one final bridge!

  1. After implant placement, the titanium implants must adhere to the jawbone through a biologic process known as osseointegration. If the Natural Teeth™ zirconia bridge were placed a week after surgery, there is a potential to disturb the process of implant healing. We have designed the Natural Teeth™ system to lessen risk and improve predictability, all the while having fixed, non-removable teeth.
  2. When you wear the Trial Smile™ bridge, we constantly re-assess the esthetics and function. If there are any changes that are needed, you have not committed to your final yet. We can simply incorporate these changes into the design of the Natural Teeth™ zirconia bridge.
  3. The tissue will shrink after surgery which creates gaps under the bridge. If we placed your final Natural Teeth™ zirconia bridge a week after surgery we would have to patch up or fill in this gap with a temporary material. Instead, we craft your Natural Teeth™ zirconia bridge to the tissue in its final settled position.

Technically, yes. We have the technology and ability to produce a final zirconia bridge in about 7-10 days. But we won’t do it.

Here are the top reasons why we advise against a final, permanent zirconia bridge right after implants have been placed:

  1. After your implant treatment, your jawbone must adhere to the titanium implants through a biological healing process known as osseointegration. One of the reasons that we prefer to use the Trial Smile bridge is that it has a more forgiving property on the bite and can absorb some of the forces. In contrast, zirconia has high rigidity and it may transfer the impact of the bite through to the implants, thus, potentially disturbing the process of healing.
  2. Zirconia can take about a week to construct and we never want our patients to be without fixed teeth during the fabrication process.
  3. The Trial Smile bridge allows us to assess the esthetics and function while healing and eating. If changes are needed, we can incorporate these into the design of the permanent Natural Teeth bridge.

The All-on-4® procedure, as its name implies, uses 4 implants in each jaw to provide a plastic, acrylic bridge, or PMMA bridge. Unfortunately, if 4 implants are not adequate for a given patient and one implant fails, the entire process has to be redone. The old adage applies:  “All on 4, none on 3!”

Natural Teeth™ uses typically uses up to 8 implants per arch. There are rare instances where we will place only 4 implants but this is not the norm. During your examination and plan review will discuss how many implants you need and why. In addition, Natural Teeth™ is reinforced with a rigid substructure to provide support to the zirconia teeth above while giving a lightweight, natural feel.

Natural Teeth™ is a permanent implant-supported bridge to replace all of your missing teeth. It is the strongest, most functional, and aesthetic nanoceramic available. It provides exceptional rigidity while still having a slight flex to absorb stress. This combination results in an incredibly durable, beautiful tooth replacement option that will both look and feel like natural teeth.
