depending what type of implant you get, the price can vary between $2000-3000, basically it cost $1000 for the implant into your jawbone, and another $1200-1500 for the crown, this is for 1 titanium implant, planning on getting 1 or 2 done this year.

I just returned from India and was given a quote of ~$600(after conversion). This includes implant and crown installation. The only catch is I'd have to be back within 4 months to complete the installation of the crown. So, a ticket to India ~900-1100 with week stayover in Istanbul + above = two fun trips. No?

hmm.. well from what i've heard from the dentist is that they needed to remove some of my jaw bone to remove the tooth.

how much do bridges cost? and are they removable? does food get stuck in them? etc?

I have both, bridges are about the same price. I'd see another dentist, doesn't seem reasonable they would have to remove bone.

Bridges are not removable, food does not get stuck in them, but apparently they don't last forever. My bridge has been in for 35 years, all my dentists tell me I am lucky, usually only last 10-15 years due to the teeth underneath them getting cavities.

Hi King Luis.

My advise to you is this, do not go for a bridge. Not only that you throw your money away if it does not last, but they have to cut your healthy tooth. The best option is to get the implant. I think Quack came up with a fair price. One more thing,
the reasing why they gave you a higher quote could due to competition. I have been told that they charge more in the rural places. If you want, my dentist may send you to a reasonable place to get a quote.

Long term the implant is better. When I had my bridge done implants were not available. Spend the money once would be my recommendation.

+1 on implant. As an added bonus you remain identifiable after a catastrophic event that would otherwise leave authorities guessing who you are. Implants with serial numbers are also excellent first steps to faking your own death. Light the car on fire, throw your tooth in, badda bing badda boom, no more alimony/debt/problems.

axxe, i don't need a tooth taken out. it was already taken out, i need a tooth to fill it's place. hence the implant. dental insurance won't cover the implant.

i have a brace holding the spot open but i've been told that next time it breaks i'm going to have to pay for it. at that time i'm going going to tell them to rip it out.

I paid $2400 + tax - this was 3 years ago and the place I got it done relocated. Parkview dental or something it was called. On queen street in brampton near the dairy queen.

I was part of the Sick Kids cleft lip/pallet program as my jaw structure is ****ed up - so if I got it done before 21 by one of their licensed orthodontists they covered up to 75%. I didn't read the clauses and I didn't do it one of their licensed folk, so I ended up paying the full price.

I'm 25 now - it hasn't shifted or anything. Still on secure.

k there seems to be alot of random info given out so lets put some of it in order.

bridge/crowning

1. they use two perfect fine teeth on both sides of the missing tooth and grind it down to a fang (if you wanna call it that) then they set the fake tooth in the middle along with two "CAPS" on top of the "FANGS" with glue.

2. there are two types, 1 is a form of plastic and 1 is a form of enamel. plastic last less then the enamel version.

3. price all depends on which tooth it is. ranging from 750 dollars up to 1800 PER TOOTH.

4. you might want to get a root canal done on both the "FANGS" prior to the bridging to avoid nerve pain from cavaties etc that may show up later on in the years. this will save you money and alot of pain in the long run.

5. ideally i would recommend it only if you have one or two teeth beside eachother missing. the more your trying to bridge the greater the distance between the "CAPS" making the bridge eventually sink.

6. food does not get stuck, maintenance is the same as everyday regular teeth and they match the bridge to the colour of your current teeth.

IMPLANTS

1. not everyone can get them. you have to have good bones if not only other way is through extrensive surgery and artificial bone placement.

2. costly. anywhere from 1300 per tooth up to 9000 a tooth.

3. its a multi stage process. you need to go in for a screw to be installed....wait a couple of weeks and then go back to get the implant screw in. then go back to get adjustments and finishing done a week weeks/months later to make sure its all perfect.

4. i would recommend this only if budget allows for it and if you have multiple teeth missing in the same region.


here are the problems with both procedures....

any tooth you put it will not be as strong as your real teeth. they all have a tendency to break, crumple and chip more easier then your average real teeth. now given the fact that this is not cheap in the first place to do you might want to make sure that you have the right plan set out for your future.


to be quite frank with you i recommend bridging your tooth for now....in the next 5-10 years implants will become way cheaper and new advancements in dental technology will bring different forms of teeth re-construction so play it smart and plan ahead.

if you got any more questions pm me and i can let you know more if i missed anything.
btw i also got a great dentist who is really cheap.
