It adds considerable time and $$$ to this whole extraction/implant nightmare. Price has gotten jacked up to 5K now for all of this and I'm about to scrrrreeeeeaaaaammm!!
(Sorry). Anyway, I think I should get a 2nd and a 3rd opinion. My regular dentist thinks maybe I can get the implant done without the bone grafting. And reading about the procedure it sounds just plain gross. So I guess getting a few opinions from different surgeons is a good idea...Maybe one will say I don't need the bone grafting too!
Thanks for any advice. Am pretty alone right now in this world and very new to the world of dental problems. Good luck to all of you!
Feeling better but in shock over the $$ now,
