Is there a different implant for full plates
My wife has been going through a major dental plan for the past 3 years due to an abusive past marriage.The plan that was agreed on was $49,000 dollars. There were 6 implants put in and 4 up top and 2 on the bottom the rest of the teeth were to be filled,and 3 root canals done.
As time went by the teeth became to decayed to fill or have root canals done, so they ended up pulling more teeth up top which lead to a full upper plate with these 4 snaps now it seems that these snaps keep wearing out. The last ones lasted 2 months.
The bottom implants failed - one was removed and the other one fell out so she ended up with a partial plate on the bottom.
my main question is: Is there a different implant for full plates compared to the ones that teeth are atteched to? How long should these snaps last? Because it seems after they are in for a short while her full upper plate won't snap in and her plate falls out. It just seems like a lot of money for a full plate and a bottom partial.
I appreciate any imput or advice to this problem .
