I am in the process of having implant. Tooth #18. I had a fractured tooth, it wasn't repairable. I had the tooth removed then had donated cadaver bone graft to fill the root structure. This was recommended as being the better option. It allows your own jaw to incorporate and replace with your own bone material. That process was $1,000. It's been 2.5 months now. Had x-rays and the area is completely healed and filled in. Next comes the Implant itself. The next procedure to be done in another month. Total time for healing of the extraction and graft 4 months. Cost for titanium implant and operation, will be another $1,800 dollars. The healing time another 4 to six months. Then the crown. I'll be back and let you know! So far so good. $ 2,800 ... Crown???
