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

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?

No Pain: The crown on the implant or abutment (depends on situation and implant) is not painful. The crown can be screw-retained or cemented. Screw-retained eliminated the abutment and the crown fits directly to the implant (usually below the edge of tissue) and is held in place with the screw. If abutment on the implant (screwed in place), then crown usually cemented, similar to crown on tooth. Good Luck. ...Read more

Cut off the crown: and get you a new one. If carefully removed, no damage to your natural tooth underneath will occur. Good luck. ...Read more

Do some dental implants come with an abutment already attached to the implant forming one piece that is surgically implanted at a first session?

One-Piece Implants: A one piece implant incorporates the abutment as an integral part of the implant. One-piece implants have a number of additional considerations as compared to two-piece options. Ask your dentist for more information. ...Read more

After healing: Once the implant heals and the prosthetic dentist takes impressions. s/he will discuss your case with the lab technician. Although custom abutments cost more they provide a better platform for the final prosthesis. ...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
