Question concerning implant

User Level:
Posted by: jimmy  (4 years ago)

I have a question that I’m interested in learning more about:

If one has a single implant in the upper jaw (unfortunately, I do not know the teeth numbers) at the next to last tooth (i.e., tooth #6), the neighboring teeth (i.e., teeth #5 and #7) have been treated with a root canal, and these two root canal treated teeth would have to be extracted at some point, what should be done then?

Would it be theoretically possible to cap this individual implant with the three teeth or would one or two (individual) implants have to be installed?

Kind regards,

Dear Jimmy,

Normally, one should install more implants. However, this depends on the situation to a large degree. If the teeth have good root canal treatments, then they do not have to be extracted.
