At Burbank Dental Lab, we understand that each restoration we create has one final purpose, and that purpose is, ultimately, to help patients.
Whether we help get someone out of pain, improve function, straighten malalignments, or make a smile more esthetic, we are changing lives. And sometimes, we get the privilege of working on a patient that leaves a lasting impact on us.
We recently had the privilege of working on such a patient. Dr. Vivian Roknian contacted us about her patient Mr. Craig Coley and explained that he had spent 39 years in prison for a crime that was later determined he did not commit. His heartbreaking circumstance motivated our team to provide our best to help give him back his smile.
In cases such as these, it is essential that we achieve and help manage the patient's esthetic expectations and provide proper form and function.
Edentulous patients can suffer from pain, discomfort, and low self-esteem. Also, edentulism has been linked to bone loss, coronary issues, cancers, and diabetes.
Taking care of tooth loss then is paramount to a patient's physical and mental wellbeing. One of the best restorations available to combat edentulism is an implant-supported fixed prosthesis. These prosthesis support tissue, maintain bone, help with chewing, and provide excellent esthetics.
