Implants Must be Useful

When Joe, a 72-year-old man, became our patient 4 years ago, he had had 5 implants (Fig.1: #1-5).

 His dentition was not complete, since he was missing 2 of the 2nd molars (Fig.2: 2nd).  He accepted our advice and had two more implants placed (Fig.2: #6,7).

When an old bridge (Fig.1) was broken down, another two more implants were placed (Fig.2: #8,9).  Now he is able to chew normally.
