If you are missing several teeth in a row and are considering a dental implant-supported bridge to restore your smile, there are now advanced options that provide an accurate and natural-looking alternative to traditional prostheses. Dr. Jose Valenzuela, Jr. offers computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) of same-day implant bridges as an option for restoring dental implants at his Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico-area practice. By using precise measurements from a digital scanner, we can create a dental bridge that fits comfortably and naturally into the unique contours of a patient’s mouth.

Skilled Dentistry Meets Advanced Technology

CAD/CAM technology.At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, conveniently located for patients in Palm Springs, Mexicali and the Imperial Valley, Yuma, and the surrounding areas, we offer advanced dental care that is supported by cutting-edge technology. CAD/CAM fabricated zirconia based bridges differ from traditional prosthetics in that they are typically attached on the same day as implant placement.

The innovative CAD/CAM technology, 3D digital images concept, and the computer-aided treatment planning makes this cutting-edge restoration option possible, with often more predictable results when compared to conventionally fabricated implant prostheses. Our durable CAD/CAM fabricated zirconia implant bridge can also be attached to implants using the All-on-4® procedure.

Your Consultation with Dr. Valenzuela

If you want to restore a gap in your smile with implant-retained restorations, Dr. Valenzuela will first conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to check for dental decay, damage, or gum disease. Patients will need to undergo treatment for any underlying oral health issues before becoming eligible for dental implants.

One of the most important steps in your dental implants treatment is the design and creation of the final implant-retained prosthetic. The computer-aided protocol of restoration fabrication is just one of many advances featured at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center.

Next, we will take digital impressions of your mouth using an advanced scanner, which then creates a virtual restoration. This information is sent to a milling machine which can create your replacement teeth according to your specifications.
