Dental implants

Has anyone here had a tooth removed and had an implant done? If so who did it?

I want to have all of my molars removed and implants put in. My dentist is refusing. There is nothing wrong with the roots. But every single one of my molars has fillings. Every year at least two of the fillings fall out because of either new cavaties or because the tooth breaks. They are becoming more filling than tooth. I've already put thousands of dollars into my teeth over the last 10 years. I'm done. Right now I have four cavaties and a filling that needs replaced. I brush 2-3 times a day, floss, fluoride rinse, don't drink soda or sugary drinks etc. My teeth just suck. I don't see any point in continueing this process of continuous fillings when it doesn't change anything. So I want to start contacting other providers to find someone that will do the surgery, I'm just not sure who to contact.

I had 2 teeth missing, the 'adult teeth' never came in.  They pulled the 'baby teeth' thinking that the others were impacted.  I had both braces and my implants done at the university of maryland.  Not only do they do a great job but they are a little cheaper because they are students who are learning but are supervised and do nothing without consent from their supervisor.   I am so happy with them I will always go there and recommend them to everyone!!

A friend had this done last year. I think it was a periodontist who did it. It was a long procedure and included a procedure to rebuild some of the bone.  In your case, I would think that crowns would be an idea. But since you aren't happy with the way things are, get another opinion. Good luck!

Honey your teeth suck because they're not getting the nutrients they need.   You need a good multi-mineral like Country Life's Bone Solid, vitamin K2 (Carlson's Menatetrenone 5mg), vitamin D3 (10,000iu) and boron. And an alkaline diet.  Limit acidic foods and beverages and brush with just baking soda or a toothpaste that doesn't have any glycerine.  My dog developed cavities on the front of her last upper molars.  I added the above supplements to her diet and started giving her veggies in her food (variety of cooked frozen veggies but mainly green ones).  And her cavities healed.  Google healing cavities naturally for more information.

No. My teeth partially suck because the enamel never formed completely. Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate the advice. My mom is a dental hygienist and she has always made sure her kids took vitamins and cared for their teeth properly. It's not all of my teeth that are falling apart. It's the last two molars on both sides of the top and the last molar on both sides of the bottom. The rest of my teeth are fine, no cavities, cracks or anything.

My dog's two molars were so bad that the enamel was completely gone, just dentin and the cavitie was large.  It all healed.

I had a molar with a crown that became abscessed last year. An Oral Surgeon places implants, and they are very expensive. The extraction of my bad tooth was over $400 with dental insurance, and the implant was $1,400 after insurance. That doesn't include the crown that my dentist will place in a couple months, I believe that will be over $2,000. I wouldn't jump to extraction if the roots of your teeth are still good.

I had implants done. Many. Long exhausting process. Included bone replacement. I destroyed my teeth with 7 years of eating disorders followed by 4 pregnancies. My ex refused to pay for a dentist and they got worse and worse. In total, for 6, it was over 30,000$ after insurance. !!! I saw a dentist and two specialists. Best thing I ever did...besides getting rid off my ex;).

Yea, I'm not looking forward to the cost. I figure at 2-3000 for each tooth, if I save like crazy, I can get one or two done a year. It's not something I want to do, I'm not happy about it. But I'm only 25 and they are literally rotting. Constant cavities and breaking. I've eaten several fillings because the tooth cracks around it and it falls out during a meal. My mom wants me to get crowns, but I'd rather just be done with them. Regardless of what I decide to do, every dentist I see agrees they will only last me another 5-10 years if this rate of deterioration continues, so I'd rather start getting rid of them now.
