1st molar needs implant

by wuyang
(Brooklyn NY)

1st molar needs implant: I'm 19 and the root canal that I got a year ago(I didn't get a crown) got an infection. Now I have to remove it and get an implant.

The surgeon said he would have to do a surgical extraction for $700. Then he went into detail how I should get a custom button so there is less space near the bottom of the crown and such for another $700.
I'm asking is it alright for a 19 to get an implant?
Then is a surgical extraction necessary? and lastly is a custom button for the implant much better then the regular ones? he said everything would cost around $4000. Also is free hand implants good or should i look for a dentist that uses guided?

2nd molars on the upper jaw are both higher than the rest of my teeth

by Dacia Stemle
(Mahomet, IL)

I've noticed that my 2nd molars on the upper jaw are both higher than the rest of my teeth. I've started to have pain in one of them. I often bite my cheek with those teeth and I've even seen a blood blister from them rubbing.

Is it possible for these teeth to be removed to lessen the pain and rubbing or would that cause the rest of my teeth to shift?

I want to have the molars replaced

Hello,

The teeth crown of both of my lower left and right first molars started to gradually brake about 10 years ago. I ignored them for about 5 years, which has allowed the corresponding upper molars to grow down a little bit to fill the empty spots.

I have visited 4 dentists in different cities in the past 5 years. But all of them recommended me to leave them as they are since they did not cause pain, and the upper molars are too long.

Recently my left first molar started to hurt occasionally. And I tend not to laugh because of the fear of displaying the empty holes in my mouth.

I want to have the molars replaced. If it is possible I hope to keep my teeth root. Also, my other molars are in good condition. I was wondering whether it is possible to use my third molars to replace the broken first molars? I feel the third molars are not very important and they will cause adverse immune responses, right?

Could some dentists please give me some suggestions? Could someone recommend me a good dentist in USA?

Thanks.

Implants at the back of your mouth where your wisdom teeth would be?

Hi, this may seem like a strange question but can you get implants at the back of your mouth where your wisdom teeth would be? I ask this because I had braces with 4 extractions and wisdom teeth extracted. My teeth and upper and lower jaw were pushed forward but now I have deep lines on my face and the skin on my face is sagging near my jaw.

I have space at the back of my mouth that I didn't have before and it is negatively affecting my appearance. I realize that this is a rare problem but I really don't want to have to get a face lift and I feel that 4 implants at the back of my mouth would help. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Bottom Back Molar Implant

by Mindy
(Edmond, OK)

My dentist and I were planning the procedure for the bottom back molar implant. He's since moved to Vegas as a teaching dentists, and I'm left wondering how to choose the right dentist- one who really knows what s/he is doing. I had so much confidence in him and feel lost. I also am spoiled and only want the highest technology in perio work with a laser cleaning which didn't hurt.

I had my very back molars removed when they became loose several years ago - (ex smoker.) I went for years with my lower end bite molars working just fine. Now they are loose, I have trouble eating.. and I have very little option other than an implant, if I'm even a candidate. I do remember my dentist telling me I had a great deal of bone loss.

If I am a candidate for implants, what kind of temporary will I get so I'll be able to chew food without having to live on soup?

Where do I even begin. Feeling overwhelmed. Age 56, good health. Poor perio health- mouth breather.

Right Rear Upper Molar

by Meema
(Boston, MA)

My right rear upper molar (farthest one back) had lost a part of the filling and broke(about a year or so ago). It was left untreated, so it further deteriorated. My options now are either a complicated root canal procedure to save it or an extraction with immediate replacement with an implant.


I have received opinions from two dentists and I would like yours also, if you would be so kind.

The first dentist told me the root canal would involve some surgery to expose the bone because the rear part of the tooth has broken below the gum line. The crown would be difficult to place successfully otherwise.

The second dentist advised me that in light of some discussion about on-again off-again pain with chewing and sensitivity to hot, cold, sweets and the fact that the tooth has been in this bad state for some time, that the tooth is probably cracked down the middle.

He thought a root canal procedure could be tried but might not last very long, due to the crack and the placement (being the last tooth, apparently it takes a lot of the load of chewing and grinding food). So he feels, the extraction with implant is the better choice.

My concerns are the following...
1) My teeth are compromised on the other side (2 missing) and this is the only side I can chew on effectively at present. Wondering if the extraction and implant will become solid enough to chew with sooner or will it be a long time healing.
2) I am a 55 y.o. woman and wondering if the trauma of extraction and all this surgery, would be miserable (my other extractions were bad with one breaking in my jaw and parts of it are still there 30 years later)... thus, extraction at my age concerns me greatly.
3) Two months ago, I was treated for a sinus infection. Wondering if the diseased tooth contributed to this (also had a bad cold prior to the infection). Am concerned the implant would create problems for my sinus with resulting infection and/or facial nerve damage.
4) I have noticed that implants appear to be used mainly in the front of the mouth, deeming them as mostly cosmetic? Wondering if the large roots of a rear implant are more complicated to place and heal?
5) Wondering if I should just get it pulled and leave it to heal, with no replacement.

Okay sorry, lots of concerns, yes. But please, what is your opinion? Root canal or extraction with implant?
Thank you
