I desperately need work done and I'm just wondering if anyone can share their experiences? Is it painful? What did it cost? Etc..

I'm going to be booking a consultation, but want an idea of whether or not I can even afford the work.

I am having one placed in March. It's going to cost $2,000. I had a tooth with a root canal become abscessed. If it hadn't been infected they could have placed the implant when they took my molar.

I have post implants. It wasn't painful after the narcotic shots.
Be sure to ask around to find a good dentist. Ask about key parts of the procedure.
Do they offer gas?
Do they do the qtip numb stuff before the shots?
Are they stingy with meds?
Good chair side manner?

Make the time to actually get comfortable with your dentist, and don't judge by the hygienist. I am of the opinion that cleaners are mean on purpose!

I've had good and bad dentists. I've found older dentist to be better, as they have seen more and won't tell you you aren't in pain like a younger one.
They will do payments and do the work in steps if that is what you need to do.

I have them on my top. They cost a total of $10,988 with tax. I was down for a day for pulling of the ones left after the accident and then had to return a week later after the swelling went down for permanent implanting.

I used to be a dental assistant. Its about $3000 per tooth - $1500 for the post and $1500 for the crown. Sometimes insurance covers it, sometimes not. Its really a better long term option than a bridge because it helps maintain the bone and you don't have to grind down healthy teeth. Recovery depends on your situation. If bone grafts are needed it's more painful and the healing process is longer.

It's implants or partial denture, I need two teeth replaced on either side of a current bridge.
