This would : Require a comprehensive dental assessment to answer your question. Each tooth needs to be assessed to see if it is salvageable.

Fix your teeth: If you can restore your teeth, then restore them... implants come close to replacing missing teeth, but they are not the same. It will also be A LOT less expensive to restore cavities than it will be to extract, place implants, and then crowns. Once restored, take care of them.
