Question by anonymous: Can dental implants be used to replace 1st and 2nd molars?
A dentist I saw said that it is difficult to place dental implants in the far back of the mouth-especially the 2nd molar region. He said the reason is there is less bone in the far back of the mouth. Is there a way around this? Are dental implants still successfully placed in the 1st and 2nd molar areas of the mouth frequently? I have two 2nd molars on the top right and lower left that may eventually need to be replaced by implants.

be careful about implants because if you get in an auto accident, where normally you would just lose a couple teeth, the person with implants may receive a broken and or shattered jaw, unless the technology has changed since the 90s
and i dunno, sorry lol
