  1. Hello Doctor I'm having fixed bridges with 4 implants or 6 implants. If I don't like the temporary fixed bridges can I have snap on dentures with the same implants ?

  2. i am curently in the 4 month waiting period on two teeth…. when i asked my dentist about same day teeth they said "Yeah!" Well, on the day i got it done they said that the implants are put in on the same day and they all acted as if they had no fucking idea what i was talking about asking for same day choppers… So i'm going to have to call bullshit, YOU ARE LYING YOUR ASS OFF! You don't have any idea what you're talking about, why are you spreading horseshit?
