Can such implants thin to withstand the pressure of chewing teeth?
I installed Straumann implants on the upper jaw 5 and 7, but the diameter is only 3.1 and 3.3 are then planned bridge. Can such implants thin to withstand the pressure of chewing teeth?
Hello! Chewing teeth are different sizes from each individual. It is advisable that You put pictures to Your question. You also need to consider the volume of bone into which implants were crucialis. Perhaps, more likely, You have no dice to establish a wider diameter implants. Therefore, in Your situation it is important not to load the implants immediately. But to wait for their complete healing (about six months) and only after this prosthesis.
