Yes: In general we pay for the time and expertise of the doctor. Different implant sites have different complexities. For example the time it takes to make sure a front tooth looks good may make it more expensive because of additional bone or gingival grafting necessary. Or if a sinus graft is needed in the back molar area, that may push the cost of a back tooth to be more expensive. $$depends on case.
A 61-year-old male asked:

No: Typically implant manufacturers only make implants and attachments (abutments, screws, etc). The crowns that attach to the implants and abutments are usually made by dental labs.

May be harmful: If the implant was placed and temporary attached the same day, contact with temp can be problematic as micromovement of implant is greatest source of failure the 1st 3-4 weeks of implant placement. I would avoid all contact with temp until you verify with your doctor.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Ok. It is the way it is. Somehow, science has to come up with the elusive bone graft material that will totally harden after a few weeks than a few MONTHS!
