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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

At what point in the dental implant process do I find out if I will need a stock abutment or a much more expensive custom abutment?
Do some dental implants come with an abutment already attached to the implant forming one piece that is surgically implanted at a first session?
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 4 more doctor answers

When the healing cover of a dental implant is removed by a restorative dentist does he have to cut my gums for the abutment to be well fitted?
Surgical dental implant dentist really thinks he can shape the 2 unit Nesbit I've been wearing so that I can wear it over the healing abutments (?).
I now have what the dentist calls a visible, "healing cap" over my dental implant. Does this mean it is just a screw cap and NOT an abutment?
