Cover Prosthetic 
If for some reason it would only place a few implants, they can not support a full bridge. Then produced a prosthesis which is then held in place and to some extent supported by implants. This allows the prosthesis is in place when the patient is talking or chewing. However, the major forces that occupied by the mucosa and underlying bone. Thus counteract overloading of the implants.
