Finding the right treatment for every patient requires careful evaluation of multiple factors as every patient’s mouth condition is very unique. It is definitely not about filling the hole with an implant restoration. CAT scans are frequently used to study the quantity and quality of bone and this will help in figuring out he the type and number of implants needed in a particular situation. In some instances the foundation needs to be built first before we can place an implant. The implant restoration which could be a IMPLANT SUPPORTED CROWN or a HYBRID DENTURE or simply a IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURE has to be carefully designed so that it can provide good chewing ability, support for the face and ultimately good long term durability and prognosis. In some scenarios MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS can be used saving patients time and money.
