Cannot locate abutments in implant supported denture: suggestions?

Last Updated March 09, 2019

I have a new patient who wants me to remove the existing short span implant supported fixed partial dentures in the maxilla and mandible and to replace them with full arch fixed partial dentures. The problem is that these existing fixed partial dentures have thick metal frameworks and I do not know where the abutments are located in relation to the frameworks. Can anybody recommend a way for me to remove these fixed partial dentures without damaging the abutments?
