Thread: dentist recommendation for tooth implant

    Default dentist recommendation for tooth implant

    People,

    My dentist says I have to replace one of my crown (one of the front teeth) with a tooth implant. He is charging me $4.5k for the tooth implant....

    Is it very expensive? I don't really have an idea how much this will cost.... Any recommendations?

    I am not looking for the cheapest dentist lah but just the average (to above average) ones...

    we have people from all walks of life taking up photography as hobby, so we probably have one of two dentists here.

    btw, TS is not asking "TFT", "time for tooth", so I guess it's OK to ask here.

    Google mini tooth implant. I did it at half the price.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Always go for second opinion unless you are every comfortable with your current. I was once told I need to replace my crown after charging $250 just to check. I went to another dentist and paid $450 to have it fixed in the same day within an hour.

    That is not nice. Nobody asked me to visit them. They happen to be in the same building I work so I drop in for convenient. Lesson learnt, check out first. Haha
