In 2002, I had 5 implants put in on the bottom. A bridge was made to span this area with teeth cantilevered past the outer implants. 2 to 3 years later one area broke just inside the last implant. About the same time the porcelain came off the last implant on the other side.
This week the cantilevered teeth on that side broke off. I went back to the implant dentist and he said the the pressure was not evenly distributed and that is why they broke. The dentist that did the other work said this was not true and and that cantilevered are no longer the way to go.
I'm caught in the middle. Does cantilevering work or are they doomed to fail with implants?
