Dental implants v. Bridge

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: zabulun  (2 years ago)
Hello, I am a 48 year old male, as I am need of a second opinion and I am need of full mouth restoration, 98% in implant; as I was advised by my Dentist that its recommend to get the bottom front teeth, bridged/crowned than implanted. She said that having implants on the bottom, as I will have implants on the top, might cause a collision while chewing food; considering that they are not my teeth. By having a bridge/crown on the bottom front instead will prevent this collision, as I know that the bottom front teeth that is just grinded down is mine; but supported with a bridge and a crown.
Can please advise your comments, if what this Dentist said me actually is true.

I am sorry but analyzing cases like this are impossible without a complete workup, including CAT scan photos, models, probing depths, and other parameters would be necessary before even expressing an opinion on your case.

As your dentist has already told you about the problem, but it is not easy for me to suggest you anything without having complete dental check up and examination. So, can you send some images so that I can find out the matter.
