    Hi @01206donzarella, and welcome to the community!

    Sorry to hear you're having issues with your teeth. Here is a list of other sources of income/reductions you may be entitled to whilst claiming PIP. There's also some information on eligibility for free dental treatment on the NHS website (mentioning income-related ESA), although I suppose it depends whether the implants would be covered by the NHS.

    Have a look at the information and see what you think - I hope this helps and best of luck!
