I had 2 implants placed where teeth have been missing a long time, #21 and #28 . I have worn an upper denture for approx 20 years. I have no lower teeth on either side. There are 6 remaining teeth in between in the front and I'm scheduled to have those removed once we are certain that the first 2 implants have integrated ( 3 - 4 months ). Then the plan is to extract the 6 remaining lower front teeth and place Endosteal implant mandible/maxilla in #22 and #27. However, what mystifies me somewhat is why would they put implants side by side like that? Wouldn't it be better to skip a tooth and put implants in a tooth away rather than side by side ( this is to support an overdenture)?? Will there be any movement of the overdenture when eating say a submarine sandwich with this set up? I thought there was going to be implants placed more than 1 tooth away but in looking over the dental plan tonight I saw that wasn't the case hence my questions. Thank you in advance for your reply(s).
