In the final stages...

From extraction of broken tooth to attachment of final crown will have cost about $4000.
Lower right molar. No bone issues.

I would do it again.

I broke my molar in December. My final crown is to be put in next week.

Surgeon required waiting 15 weeks after extraction to put in the implant, and then 15 more weeks prior to placing the crown on the post. The rest is scheduling and crown delivery time.

Guys use Sensodyne, is expensive, but beats paying 3000 dollars for periodenthal disease,
gum disease...

What I do, I brush in the morning with Colgate and at night with Sensodyne to save money...

A lot depends on genetics and diet as well as dental care. I will be 50 next month and have a grand total of 1 cavity ever. It was one that the hygienist could not even see. My wife takes extremely good care of her teeth and has several crowns and so on. She uses prescription toothpaste. I doubt sensodyne would have made any difference.

Yes it's been a very positive experience. I live in the boston area and it was about $5000. I did have to have the bone grafted first which adds to the cost. It's not a true bone graft as I believe a synthetic material is used to build up the thickness of the bone to accept the socket. Interestingly I'm 55 and have only had 2 cavities both which were in the tooth that went rogue and had to be pulled. The entire process was painless and and I'd do it again in a second. I do feel bad for many people as they would benefit greatly from this process but unfortunately it is wicked expensive as we say up here in wicked tuna land.

She had a really nice smile before. It's outstanding now.

I´m a smoker if I brush with regular tooth paste my guns bleed, if I brush with
Sensodyne they don´t...

Problem Sensodyne is 6 dollars a tube here in Europe.

The titanium implant itself is a large part of the cost. When you think about it, it is pretty awesome to be able to put a piece of metal in your jaw and have it osseointegrate with your bone.

Flossing should help with bleeding gums as well.

OK I have my flame suit on, so...

...you can fly to Mexico (or Costa Rica, or many other countries), have a expertly trained (many in the US) dentist do an implant, hang out at an all-inclusive for a week, fly home, and SAVE money. Many sites dedicated to "medical tourism..."

My wife had her amalgam fillings removed and replaced w/o mercury on Cozumel. Total cost about $600 bucks. Estimates here were $2000 to 3000...

Just an option.
