Does it make sense to get dental implants one at a time?
Most of my teeth are messed up. I have a dry mouth problem and some other issues where my teeth are fragile and break easily.
And i so don't want dentures.
I can't afford to get alot of implants at once, i thought maybe i could save up and get one at a time, save up, and get the other, and continue.
Starting with the essential teeth. (front ones)
I think dental implants are still at least $1k-2k each. so i was thinkin i might be able to afford to get a new one done every few months and in a couple years i should have a decent mouth.
I don't know about having to need my jar bone built up, im only 28 and had the first tooth removed a year or so ago so it the gum line hasnt shrunken that much, and some of the teeth i need to have replaced with an implant are still there mostly, so i think they could probably just pull those and replace them soon after the area heals so bone loss wont be much. Im only guessing thats how they could do it.
i think i need at least 10.
Does it make sense to go about it this method?
I'd rather be completely broke for the next few years doing than this having dentures.
