As a dental hygiene student you can join the American Dental Hygienists Association, and your State DHA, they will also have a local chapter (society/group affiliate) get involved with your local group as they do yearly salary surveys. They will let you know average and hi/low salaries, plus benefits and perks. This is great information while negotiating employment. good luck

Can you get a canine implant without extracting impacted canine?

Question by Mashimoto: Can you get a canine implant without extracting impacted canine?
Basically just as the question says. Is it possible to get a canine dental implant without first extracting the impacted canine tooth, just with removing the deciduous tooth? The impacted bugger can’t be guided down with braces and wire. How long does getting the implant take, and how much does it cost? Also, if the impacted tooth does have to be removed, how much will THAT cost and how long will it take? Thanks.

Answer by grandpa walleye
The permanent canine would have to be removed before the implant could be placed. Implants will run around $ 3000 and above. Surgical extraction will be a few hundred dollars. It will be several months for all of the healing to take place before you have a tooth in the area. Why can’t the problem be corrected with orthodontics? It would be easier and cheaper. Good luck
