I would like to keep the healthy teeth I have left, is it possible to get implant supported bridges for my canine and first molars instead of full implanted dentures on top and bottom?
Missing all but front four teeth on top and need a lot of dental work, what are my options?

Yes implant is great option
Kindly consult dentist with your dentist for options. Implant option is great option but your dentist needs to evaluate for amount of bone you have. Xray or CT scan will help in determine the treatment options.
Implants, missing teeth options
Depending of the amount of bone you have in the canine and the bicuspid area you might be able to get implants. Its best to first get X-rays and most CT Scan of your upper jaw in order to find out your options.
