The answer is No. In fact it’s possible to replace all of the lower teeth with an over-denture supported by 2-4 implants.
The number of implants placed depends on each patient’s case and unique situation. In some cases replacing each tooth individually or placing extra implants is necessary to provide extra strength and support and enable the patient to be as comfortable as they would with natural teeth when chewing and speaking.
