Can dental implants be used to replace 1st and 2nd molars?

Question by anonymous: Can dental implants be used to replace 1st and 2nd molars?
A dentist I saw said that it is difficult to place dental implants in the far back of the mouth-especially the 2nd molar region. He said the reason is there is less bone in the far back of the mouth. Is there a way around this? Are dental implants still successfully placed in the 1st and 2nd molar areas of the mouth frequently? I have two 2nd molars on the top right and lower left that may eventually need to be replaced by implants.

be careful about implants because if you get in an auto accident, where normally you would just lose a couple teeth, the person with implants may receive a broken and or shattered jaw, unless the technology has changed since the 90s

and i dunno, sorry lol

Do you have to get it removed and get a bone graft? What’s a bone graft? This is the only complication with dental implants that scares me.

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.

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

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?

Best answer:

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.
