Dental implants are a secure method of replacing missing teeth. They will act as the root of a tooth, which then anchors in the porcelain crown on top. It is quite a common misconception that for each individual tooth you have missing, you will then need to have the same amount of implants for replacement teeth.
This is very much dependent on where your missing teeth are. If you have a gappy smile and the gaps are not next to each other, then you will need to have a dental implant per gap. But for example, if you have three missing teeth which are adjacent to each other. It may be possible to have two dental implantswhich then bridge the gap (case dependent).
If you have a more severe case when you need to fully replace a full arch of teeth, then it could be 4-6 implants that are needed with an overdenture securely attached. What option will be the most suitable for you will be very case dependent as it does depend on the exact case of your teeth.
