Not enough room for 2 implants. (photo)

i have a upper 1st and 2nd bicuspid missing there is a gap of 14mm the implant dentist said there was not enough gap for 2 implants there is enough bone. What alternatives are there without having a bridge that will damage more teeth? the dentist said he could brace the teeth to create more room but this would take time and be very inconvenient. Thanks for looking.

You can be evaluated for individual crowns on the teeth adjacent to the spaces in order to create or "negotiate" more space for the implants. Alternatively you can be evaluated for single implants on each side leaving an intentional space between the posterior aspect of the implant crown and the tooth behind it. Although these are not ideal recommendations, it could be something to consider.
