Why Do I Want Another Implant?

Mr. Tang is nearly 90 years old.  Four years ago, he had lost several teeth and 7 more needed to be gone (Fig.1: #1-7).  After extraction, six implants were placed in spite of his age (Fig.2: #1-6).  Recently he returned and asked for the 7th implant (Fig.2: #7).  Why?  Early this year, he suddenly lost consciousness.  All-round medical tests do not reveal any serious illness.  Mr. Tang wants the last implant so that he can eat better before his body deteriorates.  In fact he is doing well during and after surgery.  We wish him long and happy life.
