Very soft teeth, had braces, most top teeth broken perm bridge fell out. Not high on dentures, how good are 4 in 1 implants vs individual type?

Very soft  teeth, had braces, most top teeth broken perm bridge fell out. Not high on dentures,  how  good  are  4 in 1 implants  vs individual type?

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. ...Read more
