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.

Re: Does it make sense to get dental implants one at a time?

It is a perfectly viable option, to do one implant at a time. Yes, it will work out just fine.
I would also advise that you ask your dentist if they offer any sort of monthly payment plan. That might allow you to do more than one at a time, just to move things along.
Good luck !!! Implants are wonderful, I have two myself.
