Bridgit, a dental implant patient, asks:
I have three upper incisor dental implants holding a 4-unit bridge. My problem is that the bridge keeps coming loose. The fit is snug but the adhesive holds for only a few months at a time. The abutments are very smooth and I'm wondering if they are available with a rougher surface which would hold better. Are there stronger cements? Can anything be done to keep this bridge in? What could be going wrong here? I am afraid to chew to hard on it in case this loosens it. Thanks for any advice.
