The above table summarizes the basic differences in various attributes amongst the full arch options that are currently available.  Keep in mind, that individual circumstances may not allow for certain options, most notably the individual implant option.  Also, major grafting may be necessary to allow for any of the fixed, or non-removable options.  The 2 implant overdenture is possible without bone grafting in approximately 95% of cases.  The LM Bridge will require grafting when insufficient bone is present to properly support the implants.  Even with this additional cost, the benefits are still tremendous.
