I do these all the time. 12 teeth per arch cemented. No screw holes, no fillings, no bulk. I have several examples. If you want more implants it raises cost. It will also be more tedious to clean. If that is okay, talk with your doctor.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
Very good questions. What do you have in place now? There are several ways to complete cases like you have mentioned. The answer is dependent on the quality of your bone, the length of the implants that can be placed as well as how far apart the implants are placed for bridges. Careful planning with a 3D scan and surgical guide from the 3D scan can ensure the implants are placed where they can be restored. It is important to begin with the end in mind. Screw retained versus cemented, pros and cons to both. You can retrieve screw retained as well. More important for a proper plan to restore your mouth to proper function, health, and esthetics and hopefully long term stability. Talk to your dentist again and ask more questions.Good luck
