    You should have a detailed discussion with your dentist before going for any dental treatment!

    Hi,

    I think you need to find out more information from either your oral surgeon or another dentist. Ask if this original implant is in the best position and how much room there is for a second implant beside it. Is there is sufficient room for the implant crowns to be placed on top of the implants and will they look good? If the original implant is in a decent position and your oral surgeon is prepared to do the second implant free of charge then it might be worth you staying with them, but I can understand that you might not trust them.

    I agree with Dubai Dental that you need to have a detailed discussion with your dentist before you have any more treatment. Make sure you fully understand and are completely happy with any further treatment suggested.

    Best regards,

    Ali
