I wondered if you can do more than one tooth per implant? I need three teeth replaced. Three on one side of my mouth and two on the other, but I can’t afford five implants.
Thanks in advance Jenn from Syracuse
It is quite common to put two teeth on an implant, but I think three teeth would strain it too much. In your case, I think you can get away with three implants. I know you’re worried about cost, but I want to caution you not to just go with the cheapest dentist you find to do your dental implants. There are so many implant horror stories about under-qualified dentists. In the end it will end up costing you a lot more than if you’d just gone to a more expensive, but highly qualified implant dentist. Plus, an inexperienced dentist could cause permanent damage.
