Does anyone have experience with dental implants? I am considering replacing a molar and would love to hear about what it's like from someone who had it done rather than just the technical info.

hi there, i am a dentist. its a very good option to go for dental implant. its the latest thing in dentistry. well i have assisted in some of the cases of dental implant. i hope u r aware of its technical details. its expensive, but worth considering. thats because once done it can be used later in life for fixing other dental prosthesis. what i mean to say is once u go for a implant, and u lose your other teeth, and u plan to go in for a denture, the impant tooth can be unscrewed and a new fitting can be used to help retain your denture.

That is interesting... I did not know that, but it makes sense with everything else I have been told.

I'm about to get one myself, for (gulp) over $3700. Since my insurance is not covering for it, I figure I have the right to shop around for prices, but my initial efforts are fruitless - the web sites say who does it in my area and general information about it, but not even one (so far) has estimated price ranges. I would hate to schedule appointments to several places at random for estimates - pity there's no site like progressive.com for dental estimates ...

Oh, good topic. I would like to find out about this as well, as it is something I am considering for myself. I have three spaces where adult teeth never formed, so when the baby teeth fell out there was nothing to replace them. Luckily the spots are not easily visible when I talk or smile! I hope someone can provide some good information on the implant procedure... pain level, healing process, etc. I already know it costs an arm and a leg!
