See the surgeon: Normally the placement of the implant can cause temporary discomfort for a short time. Once the integration to the bone occurs and crown is placed no pain or funny feelings should be present. ...Read more

What is a reasonable cost for a dental implant, including the abutment and crown, and can they be done by the same dr.?

What is a reasonable cost for a dental implant, including the abutment and crown, and can they be done by the same dr.?

Depends and yes!: The cost of the surgical placement of the implant, abutment and implant crown depend on what part of the country you receive the treatment. Obviously nyc would be more than boone, nc just due to overhead and cost of living. Range could be $3k to $5k. A dentist if trained in surgical and restorative techniques, expect great success! 4 my office, i'm the restorative guy & placed by my surgical assoc. ...Read more

Is there such a thing as a dental implant that comes premade with an adjustable abutment head?

Is there such a thing as a dental implant that comes premade with an adjustable  abutment head?

Sort of: Some implants for very small spaces are one piece with their abutment. These abutment sections can be ground down a little if needed. Most other implants have stock abutmenhts that screw into place. These are of different sizes, angulations and shapes. There are also custom abutments that can be machined or cast if the anatomy is such that nothing off the shelf will work. ...Read more

If a dental implant costs a dentist about one hundred dollars why is it that the surgical procedure is three thousand with abutment?

If a dental implant costs a dentist about one hundred dollars why is it that the surgical procedure is three thousand with abutment?

Many costs: First,any implant from a reputable company costs well more that $100.Also,the components involved to place it are very costly (Surgical drill,multiple burs,torque driver, etc).These will need to be properly cleaned and sterilized.Other instruments needed to clean-out and prepare site.Possible grafting needed. Most importantly the knowledge and skill to properly and successfully place it.Good Luck. ...Read more

Excellent !: If your dentist feels they can use your old prosthesis in the interim, then you save the expense of making a transitional partial. All the best... ...Read more

I will also have 2 surgical implants placed between other teeth with healing abutments. What can fill in the empty space and not use a flipper?

I will also have 2 surgical implants placed between other teeth with healing abutments. What can fill in the empty space and not use a flipper?

Not Much: A temporary removable partial denture (flipper) is usually used. Are you wearing anything now? If not, another three or four months will not make a difference. If you are wearing a denture, have your dentist modify it for use over the implants. ...Read more
