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

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

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?

Most importantly the knowledge and skill to properly and successfully place it.Good Luck. ...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

Maybe: The question here is whether or not the dental implants are infected. If you don't have pain, mobility, swelling, or pus at the implant site, and there is no evidence of bone loss on the x-ray, then it is unlikely to be the cause of your fever and body aches. I'd have your doc rule out the implants, then see your family doc for more testing to find out what's going on. Keep smiling ! ...Read more
