Question:
Bridge instead of a denture: I have had upper bridges for roughly 55 years.

But because of decaying underbrige teeth, I was treated with 4 dental implants and a denture. Can I have a bridge installed instead on these implants? These dentures impact my speech. ... Visitor from FL

Answer:
Dental implants used for your dentures may be different from what would be required for a bridge. If your dentist is unsure if it is possible, consult a Prosthodontist. Prosthodontic specialists can be very creative in developing treatment solutions.

Depending upon the location of your dental implants, the number of them may need to be increased.
