Two dental implants on the same tooth for more stability?
(Vienna, VA USA)
I had 2 missing molars for many years. My dentist in the US suggested getting dental implants. These missing molars are on either side of my lower jaw. The price he quoted me was $4,500 for each implant. I don't have that kind of money. My wife is from Peru so I packed up my family and went to Lima to a dentist that was recommended to me by one of my wife's friends. The dentist told me after conferencing with the oral surgeon that 2 posts inserted into the jaw to support each crown would provide more stability so I agreed. The operation was performed and everything appeared to go well. I went to the dentist yesterday and he took x-rays of the posts. One side appeared to be straight and ready for the crown once healed. The other side appeared very different. One post was straight but the other was leaning toward the post next to it, almost touching it. The doctor assured me that this would not create a problem with the crown. I am a little worried and I'm looking for advice and other opinions regarding the position of the titled post. I will do my best to recreate what I saw on the x-ray but they won't be the actual x-ray after the implant. Please help!!! Thanks!!
