You see an old bridge on implants on an all multi-units bridge that was made, and the patient lost the premolar – the first premolar in the lower jaw. So, in this case, we have two options. The first one is we can wait and make an implementation, and add an implant. And the second option is we can change the bridge to a new bridge with one more crown. Now there are pros and cons for every decision because if there are some kind of health issues, you can just add another crown and you’ll finish the whole process. You don’t need to add any more implants. And on the other hand, you can add implants. In this case, I don’t really see a real pro for adding an implant because you can take out the old bridge, change the abutments, take impressions, and make a new four-unit bridge on those cantilevers.
