Could a first molar eruption cause enlarged submandibular node in a child? The node is 1.7 CM w/ bening features in us ('"reactive node").

Yes, but...: A molar eruption, mouth sores, gum damage, or anything else in that part of the mouth can lead to an enlarged node nearby (such as submandibular or neck nodes). However, the more common causes are strep throat and viral infections in kids. If there is nothing wrong with a child, and the only thing is one enlarged node, some doctors just recheck it each month for 2-3 months. ...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
