Implant-Supported Bridge with Bone Loss: How would you treat this?

Last Updated December 04, 2017

A new patient presented to my office with broken #3. She is 68 years old, healthy and has no active periodontal disease, even though bone loss is evident on the x-rays. She reported that the implant bridge was done about 1-2 years ago. My question relates to treating the bone loss on the implant supported bridge. The existing prosthesis has been designed poorly and has large overhangs on all abutments and pontic. What options do I have for treating the bone loss around the implants, especially #31, after removal of the existing 3-unit bridge?
