Treatment: implant-supported complete arch bridge (fixed or removable)

I’m not sure I want to go down this route...
IYou should always seek advice from your dental professional or implant specialist on what treatment solution is right for you. Instead of an implant-supported complete arch bridge, you could opt for conventional dentures located with two implants. This is the minimum standard of care indicated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) - McGill Consensus 2002, Montreal - for patients with no teeth.
YYou may want to choose to continue with complete conventional dentures. However, with the latter option, after a while the bone supporting the gum beneath conventional dentures will shrink due to lack of use. You may already be experiencing some side to side movement of your dentures as a result or find yourself having to apply cement or adhesives to keep them in place on a daily basis. The pressure of chewing could also reduce the blood supply to the gums and accelerate bone shrinkage leading to ongoing impairment of eating and speech.
