Surgical dental implant dentist really thinks he can shape the 2 unit nesbit i've been wearing so that i can wear it over the healing abutments (?).

Temporary device: as an interim replacement while an implant is integrating. Great and very common procedure.

Excellent !: If your dentist feels they can use your old prosthesis in the interim, then you save the expense of making a transitional partial. All the best...
