I have a failing bridge on my UR1,2,3. Ur3 needs to be extracted which I want to replace with an implant. I have been recommended to have a cantilever bridge on this implant to replace my missing UR2. with a separate crown on UR1. Two dentists have recommended this option.
A third dentist has recommended two separate implants on UR3 & 2. As they argue that the physics of a cantilever bridge and the pressure on one implant (bla bla bla)! isn't guaranteed to last and they don't recommend doing just one implant and cant guarantee it. Also they think aesthetically it will look better with two separate implants. But the previous dentist who recommended the cantilever bridge thinks it will look aesthetically better with a cantilever.
Please help don't know which option to go for. although the quote for the two separate implants is cheaper! but I did feel a bit more comfortable with the dentist who recommended the cantilever option.
