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

I do not get it with dental implants. Does the crown lay on top of the gum that encircles the abutment that is smaller in circumference? Hurts?

I do not get it with dental implants. Does the crown lay on top of the gum that encircles the abutment that is smaller in circumference? Hurts?

Nope.: The implant is the replacement for the root. The abutment is a connecting piece that is fixated within the implant. The crown sits on the abutment as a it would on the natural tooth that was prepared to receive a crown. ...Read more

A molar is a larger tooth than a typical lower front tooth. Does a dental implant, abutment and crown cost near the same for both situations?

A molar is a larger tooth than a typical lower front tooth. Does a dental implant, abutment and crown cost near the same for both situations?

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. ...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

Deep dental injections: Why do I have to be numbed up after an implant healing cap is removed for an abutment placement?

Deep dental injections: Why do I have to be numbed up after an implant healing cap is removed for an abutment placement?

Incision: There is an incision that will be made to gain access to the implant. The anesthetic will not only prevent the pain of the incision, but it will also control the bleeding so that the surgeon can see what they are doing. Usually the injection is superficial in the gingiva surrounding the implant. It's a piece of cake. ...Read more

Is a healing cap the same as a healing abutment that protrudes through the gum? Just had 2 dental implants. Want to get a better understanding.

Is a healing cap the same as a healing abutment that protrudes through the gum? Just had 2 dental implants. Want to get a better understanding.

NO: Healing cap refers to a thin-topped screw which protects the top of the implant from debris/ ingrowth of tissue/bone. We have been using these from the inception of the root-form implant in the 60's.Later we learned that we could eliminate a surgical step by placing a healing abutment instead. This transverses the tissue and protrudes to a selected height,preserving access to the implant.Good Luck ...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
