I was told today I need 2 dental implants when a dentist 6

Customer Question

I was told today I need 2 dental implants when a dentist 6 months ago said I just needed a crown on one. I have both X-rays to compare and was trying to find a second opinion. I was also told I have an infection under one from a shaded spot on my X-ray. The other dentist did not mention this. I am a bit concerned on what I am being told.
JA: Have you seen a dentist about this yet?
Customer: yes just left this afternoon
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.

Take you time with uploading the xrays for me to compare, I will look at them in the morning.
