How much would it cost to get a FULL SET of dental implants?

Question by ▐▀▀▀▀▀▌ ▌ Cyrus ▐ ▐▄▄▄▄▄▌: How much would it cost to get a FULL SET of dental implants?
How much would it cost me to get a full set (top and bottom) of dental implants. It doesn’t really matter the location New York or California. Would I get a break on the price for getting a full set? Also how many hours would it take?

Answer by Picture Taker
Full set, as in enough implants to support an entire mouth full of teeth? Of course, you would have to include the cost of the teeth, too, or there is no point in getting the implants. There are a couple of ways to restore implants, but I would want you to have at least 8 implants in EACH arch. This allows for the possibility that maybe one or two will fail and you will still have enough left to support your bite. Even with a “frequent flyer” discount, you will pay at least $ 30,000 no matter where you are located. The “premium” restoration for this would be all porcelain and gold crowns, which would cost another $ 40,000 for the attachments to the implants (abutments) and crowns. A somewhat cheaper route would be to have something like a denture that clips over the implants onto a bar, but it would not need the full extension of a denture. This would probably be about $ 10,000 for the dentures and you could get by with fewer implants, but you would still spend at least $ 30-40,000 total.

How many hours would it take to get the implants themselves? All frickin’ day. How long to restore them? That depends on how you do it, but several months is the norm.

Q&A: What steps should I take to become a dental assistant?

Question by Jessica: What steps should I take to become a dental assistant?
I’m starting my first year of college with plans of becoming a dental assistant..but I feel like I’ve been getting the run-around throughout this whole process! I’ve looked into several community colleges and I’m confused on the next steps I should take.

My first concern is that I’ve read terrible reviews on most dental assistant programs…from the price… to the “hands-on training”..
My guidance counselor suggested I take pre-reqs to get into a dental assistant course at a nearby college..biology, chemistry..the usual. If I do successfully complete the pre-reqs and obtain my certification..how easy is it to get an entry level job at a dental office with no prior experience in the dental field?
By no experience I mean I’ve worked as a fast food manager for a few years, a carpenter and a secretary. And if you think that sounds bad on a resume, let’s top it.. I’ve been receiving unemployment for the past 5months. Despite that, I’m a bright, hard-working team player that’s dependable and reliable.

Somebody…anybody…PLEASE help if you know what I’m going through!!!!!!
