I had a dental implant on two teeth that were pulled. Was told $1500.00 per implant.My insurance did not cover the quoted procedure so I paid $3000.00 up front. I did submit to my ins company because he is a PDP member and the difference to my credit was $399.00.
I called dentist office and girls said that did not include the abutment and he does not owe me a refund. Ins co. said he should submit a charge for the "abutment".
Question: on inplants are the abutments considered part of the implant or totally separate. I must tell you he is not going to be doing my crowns, my regular Dentist is going to do that.
