Excellent: They provide excellent health, function, and aesthetics, especially if you opt for individual ceramic crowns bonded to the milled titanium framework. If you have sufficient bone in the back area you may have 6 implants and 14 teeth instead of 12. Costs a bit more. You can see more at By Design Dental Implant Center and other internet sites. Good luck.

Implants are best: The more implants you have placed, the steadier the end result. I prefer six to eight implants on the upper arch and four to six on the lower arch for ideal results when placing overdentures (removable yet they snap in firmly) or hybrid dentures that are fixed to the implants and only removed by the dentist.

Great idea: However, Ii you are interested in dental implants, it's a good idea to discuss it carefully with your dentist first. Just to make sure you are a good candidate based on your individual condition. Good luck.

Dental Implants: Each case has to be worked up and evaluated on its own individual circumstances. The type and amount of bone, the medical history, the occlusion, the jaw relationships all go into formulating the treatment plan. The surgeon who is placing the implants and the restorative dentist need to work together as a team and discuss your treatment options, prognosis, cost, etc. with you. Get two opinions.
