Cost of tooth implant vs bridge

Common Questions and Answers about Cost of tooth implant vs bridge


Avatar f tn On one side I have a crowned tooth (gold crown) and on the other I have a tooth that is full of filings. I need to decide between an implant and a bridge. The dentist suggests a bridge - as one of the side teeth will likely need a crown in the future. The oral surgeon suggests an implant, as I have a gold crown and it is a shame to lose that expense.
Avatar n tn I presently have an upper bridge, consisting of 3 teeth, towards the back of my mouth. I now have a tooth, from an old root canal that has to extracted. This is a lower molar on the same side where I have my upper bridge. My choice is another bridge or an implant. The teeth on both sides of the molar that has to be removed are teeth with fillings, so they aren't in the best of shape. My concern is having both an upper and lower bridge on the same side of the mouth.
Avatar f tn In addition, the XRay he took showed darkening at the root of 7 - he said that it is unclear whether this is affecting 7 or is left-over trauma from 8, but that either way it will probably need a root canal. The estimated cost of these procedures is around $7,300 for the implant (9) and new crown (8), and $6,000 for the bridge (8,9,10).
Avatar m tn my implant is gonna be thousands!
Avatar n tn after I commit to the cost factor, what would be the odds of my retaining the tooth with my dental habits (brush fairly daily and do not floss). I've had too many people tell me over the last couple days that they had a rct/crwn done, only to have the tooth removed in about a year. With my habits, am I a candidate for the same results, or is a rct/crwn more reliable than I am led to beleive.
Avatar f tn LIBB implant, cylinder implant and the Brånemark type. It was a part of research project supervised by Ethical Commission. A serious clinical and radiological reaction followed around all the implants, which made the removal of the implant necessary. After which the allergic ailment was healed.
Avatar m tn Well, if its a bridge vs implant, then the implant would be the more expensive alternative due to the lack of insurance coverage. Unfortunately most policies with dental insurance don't cover dental implants. Still, a dental implant should last longer than a bridge and it would preserve #13 as well. As a long term investment, a dental implant is more ideal. It may cost more upfront but it should, in theory, last longer as well although no one can guarantee that.
Avatar n tn ok so did you go with the bridge out of cost vs implant cost? if number 6 was a virgin tooth i wouldnt touch it, too late now. sounds like the lab messed up and made the whole thing a bridge, then dr had them seperate them and wanted to seat them anyway. did you discuss using all porceline vs metal on the single crowns? even bridges can be made all porceline. it can depend on other factors so you need to bring this up to your dds.
Avatar n tn I would call the office and ask the prices on RCT vs extraction (+ possibly a bridge or implant cost). I would also look into the second opinion. I sincerely hope that this reply hopes you in some or another way. :) PS: As a fellow TMJD sufferer I would advice to try using hot or cold compress on the area. Your hygienist or dentist may know some stretching exercises for your mouth.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well. You may also get a splitting headache, felt most intensely in the forehead. • Sphenoid sinuses.

Avatar n tn I agree with the poster above.. people getting hooked on the "liquid Handcuffs" and all the side effects that come with someone stuck on methodone... I have heard awful things.. My only personal experience was a nine day taper in rehab once when I was 18.. I was coming off of heroin though which the methodone makes more sense.. People getting on methodone to get off pills just does not make any sense to me at all...

Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.

Avatar n tn 9% of the people who have it without any signs. My itchiness has been getting progessively worse for the past few years. I'd say almost 3 yrs now.

Avatar n tn Hi I m a 28 year old and suffer some degree of ED in recent. I start masturbated since I m 19 and usually use porn as a form of visual stimiulation. I have observed that I have lost the ability to maintain erect during intercource or I only get weak erection. My question is: does masturbation in association with porn will "exhaust" my interest towards sex and create a negative impact on my ability to get aroused in real sex?
