My dentist does not recommend second molar implants. I really do not want a hole in my mouth. Can I find reputable professionals who have experience in second molar implants?
Thank you!

2nd Molar Implants
by: Dr. Lee

2nd Molar Implants - why not?
While the case for every individual is unique, and circumstances may vary, overall, there should be NO reason not to have an implant placed for the 2nd molar. I recommend you seek a good oral surgeon for a consultation. You should not have to walk around with a 'hole in your mouth' if there are options out there.

Best of luck.

There is absolutely - no reason why 2nd molar implants are not advisable . If there is no opposing 2nd molar and the patient is not willing to replace it - then it can be avoided.

2nd molar implants
by: Dr Adrian

Well, actually, the bone in the maxillary 2nd molar region isn't always the best, there is often only a small thickness of cortical bone, and mostly trabecular bone present. This CAN impact on the stability and long term prognosis for an implant.

Also most masticatory function occurs forwards of the 2nd molar (unless you have a full dental arch with the 3rd molars erupted as well). So the question here is, WHICH 2nd molar are you planning to replace AND what is the jaw/teeth relationship (the way they bite together).

Missing second molar
by: Anonymous

I was getting a severe pain on the left side of my head. The dentist found that a filling had fallen out of my second molar and that I needed a root canal. He said the tooth was cracked.He gave it a 50/50 chance of success.

I read about problems with root canals and opted to have the tooth extracted. The dentist tried to talk me out of having the extraction and explained about the tooth above the missing molar later having problems and perhaps having other teeth moving.

I recently was thinking about these potential problems and thought about getting an implant. I went to see an implant specialist and he too told me that since all my other teeth are in good shape don't do it. The upper tooth might have to come out but that would probably not be for over 20 years.

I am 58 - so I am OK with that. He said my teeth will not shift positions with only missing the one tooth. He also said that there are some risks involved with implants so why take a chance.
I am having no problems eating.

I may need a second upper molar extracted. I will know soon. But, from reading here, I cannot tell if an implant is worth pursuing. I don't want to lose a tooth and then not replace it. And how long before the bottom tooth falls out with no opposing pressure?

Thanks!

Second Molar [Tooth #2 - Upper Right Rear] Implant NEW
by: SS

Since the bone structure for tooth #2 [second molar - upper right rear] is soft, then would a dental implant be advisable?

A dental implant specialist has recommended just to just pull it [tooth #2] and not replace it with an implant since the bone structure for 2nd molar is soft and the implant will not succeed in the long term.

But, I know if the tooth is pulled and not replaced, then the bones around the extraction site will collapse, which might adversely affect the facial structure. One Surgeon said the bone collapse will be negligible. Is this true?

It seems dental implant specialists can't agree with certainty as whether or not a 2nd molar implant is a good idea or not?

I'm not impressed with such contradictory and uncertain answers from dental implant specialists who confuse people with their answers and place all the risks on the patient who have to make a decision based on bad, uncertain and confusing answers from these dental specialists.

So much for the dental/medical science that seems to be still in a primitive stage!


Huge hole left after Top left 2nd Molar extracted NEW

It has been 8 days now and still very tender it was not stitched so the hole looks huge but matches my other gum colour. Should it have been stitched?This 2nd molar must have been my biggest tooth as the gap is about 15mm.

IMPLANTS ARE NOT AS GREAT AS THEY ARE PUT UP TO BE. EXPENSIVE, MIGHT GET INFECTED. PERIO DISEASE. COST OF PUTTING IN, COST OF TREATING IF INFECTION, COST OF TAKING OUT. I WOULD NOT DO THIS AGAIN

Implant? NEW

I had my lower left second molar extracted (no 3rd molars). I have a good bite and other teeth are fine. Do I need an implant to save my upper left second molar and or my bite and or bone structure?

I am freaked out too. I have a crack in the root of my second molar #18. They say it has to come out. I am pondering implant. But, I also am finding a hard time getting the straight scoop about whether they are effective.

Of course there are available many reputed professionals who have experience in second molar implants. But if you want to do it urgently, you should think twice about it. So people have said that it is not much good to do the second molar implant. EMR Software

I removed mine and my bite is better. The ADA is crazy. I have 24 teeth and I feel like a million bucks.

BTW is anybody suffering malnutrition from missing 2nd molar? NO!

I think it should be recommended by more dentists. And moviestars do it to make there jaw look more hollow.

Should I get the implant NEW
by: Anonymous

I recently had a my lower right second molar removed. It is really bothering me not having a tooth in that space. Is this something you just adjust to and get used to? The oral surgeon said that sometimes patients replace them and sometimes not....He said its really not necessary. I feel it is necessary and am left feeling kind of depressed without it. Anyone have experience with replacing it with an implant????

You cannot think about having anything until as well as unless you don't have the needed money. So for that required money you'll want an earnings.

IMPLANT PLACED IN THE WRONG SPOT NEW
by: Anonymous

I am missing tooth 30 & 31. My insurance will not cover a implant for #30 but #31 is covered at 60%. My general denist refered me to a oral surgeon to place a implant for #31, once healed he would craft a larger crown to cover the majority of the empty space. My surgeon agreeded stating this was a good idea. I had the surgery on a friday on Monday, i was contacted by the billing depatment who stated the implant was placed in #30. I told them insurance wouldnt pay, they replied we can put you on a payment plan. What was my out of pocket $1300 is now going to cost <$4,000. SUGGESTIONS PLEASE..

Help-upper second molar extraction NEW
by: Anonymous

I had a crown followed by a root canal on my upper right second molar. After three months the tooth is still erupting at night and sensitive to pressure. A crack is suspected but can't be seen in 3D x-rays. I'm getting it extracted in 2 days. I have a lot of anxiety about a future implant, the sinus lift etc. I'm getting conflicting information about implants. Is there anything I can do to avoid the implant without eventually losing my lower second molar? I do not have my wisdom teeth
