Dentist recommendations in Pattaya? (need implant & crown) in Pattaya Posted March 4 44 minutes ago, Yellowtail said: I am not sure they will do bridge using one implant without crowning another existing tooth, you can ask. Were it me, I would go with two implants. If I was short on dough, I would replace the recently extracted tooth with an implant as soon as possible (I don't think you want the hole to fill in) and get a cheap partial denture until I had the money for the second implant. I would absolutely not get a bridge using the new implant and an existing healthy tooth. Thank you for the comments. I only had the tooth extracted 4 weeks ago and its still a bit sore. I will leave it 8 weeks before I decide what to do. Added complication is I have to go back to the UK in July for 3 months so it will have to be done before I go or after. I suppose I could wait and consult my specialist in the UK who is a top dentist and see what he says and then decide what to do. Cant afford UK prices for this though but at least I would have a top opinion on what to do.
