Eve a dental implant patient asks us:
I am 51, female, attractive and toothless. To date I have spent in excess of $7,000 for 2 lower dental implants and upper bone grafting.
That was over a year ago and I can't seem to get the 2 separate doctors to agree on a plan. I simply cannot get the information I need to make an educated decision about what to do. My plan is to have 4 lower dental implants and 6 uppers and attach a denture to that. But is that the best way? Couldn't one also have crowns put on and make bridges and then attach those to dental implants? What´s the real benefit of dental implants vs. crowns and bridges? Thanks for any help as to a basic treatment plan and an understanding of the issues here.
