Hi Mark. Can a cantilever bridge be fitted onto 2 implants successfully? The 2nd tooth crown I have becomes loose constantly and screws into the implant fracture. I think this is due to forces exerted on the implants which are on the top jaw next to the front teeth as there isn’t a tooth at the back and both sides of the upper jaw that rests on a tooth on the bottom jaw so my bite rests behind the teeth at the front. Do you think an extra tooth built into a cantilever bridge should correct this?
