Creating new teeth

Today I just wanted to post a few photos of the implant process that I went through.  You will see various photos from the impression that they took of my jaw, up to the actually new teeth, or bridge themselves.

What you see above is an  X-ray with 4 implants.  One, however could not be used.

In this impression of my mouth, you can see the top part of the implants or abutment.

Here is the rawest form of the bridge itself.

The bridge will be placed on top of the abutment.
The final product. It is ready to be cemented into my new jaw.

I have had the new teeth for about 2 1/2 years.  It is different eating on that side of my jaw but I have gotten used to it.  I am just glad to have a full set of teeth.
