Marius Bridge



Testimony from patient

  Denis Laquerre
I have my Marius Bridge for 10 years and my major point of observation is it permitted me to recover my integrity. And all of this without bone grafting.

  Michel Labrecque
I have my Marius Bridge for 14 years. I lost my teeth at age 15, and I had only poor quantity of bone, but by this approach, compared to all other approaches, it has been possible for me to receive the treatment without bone grafting. Now I feel confident with my teeth and I cannot imagine to live without them.

  Marius Lessard
I am a businessman and a singer. I never accepted a denture and now I did recovered my teeth since 16 years. I have been the first patient receiving this type of treatment, and I am very proud of this. I encourage anybody to make the move and feel more confident.

Professional testimony

After having visited Yvan Fortin's office twice and seeing the implant and prosthetic work performed there, anyone who could learn the surgical and prosthetic techniques recommended would be happy with the results. This is a great service to patients that minimizes the need for most grafting procedures. Without question, the MariusBridge is the most esthetic and stable fixed/removable prosthesis I have seen so far. It's place in the complete arch restoration is long overdue.

The Marius Bridge System as developed by Dr. Fortin has proved to be a great asset in dealing with the moderate to severely resorbed maxilla's without using any type of bone augmentation procedures. His no-nonsense approach to looking at the osseous anatomy of the maxilla reminds me of Dr. Brånemark's ability to "see" what is there. Combine this with the CAD-CAM restorative component and it is a treatment modality we have been waiting for.

In my 10 years of personal clinical experience utilizing the Marius Bridge techniques, I have found it to be a most predictable and effective solution in the management of the fully edentulous maxilla. It has application in the moderately to severely resorbed upper jaw, and is often my first treatment option in such cases. Patient satisfaction has been excellent.

Dr. Fortin:
You are to be commended for developing the Marius bridge. A full arch restoration that combines the functionality, stability, and patient acceptance of a fixed restoration with the cleansability and lip support of a removable denture. The patients that I have seen are thrilled that, after years of wearing dentures and experiencing ridge resorption, they can have new teeth with no compromises. Best of all, with the recent addition of precision milled components, the Marius bridge is now available to any dental office. I expect the Marius bridge will soon become standard treatment in progressive dental offices everywhere. The Marius bridge is exactly what many of our maxillary edentulous patients have been wanting for years, and unable to get until now. Our patients appreciate knowing that you have fully tested the Marius bridge in your office for many years to make it predictable and trouble free. Thank you for this important and necessary addition to our treatment options.

The edentulous maxilla presents unique challenges in restoring the function, facial esthetics and phonetics. The Marius Bridge addresses all of these factors and in addition allows for hygiene maintenance and simplifies repairs.
