cost of implants
Amount: $36,700.00 not covered by insurance

Which Tooth: all
Ok, 2008: 500 for an mri, 2000 anesthesia, 30000 for: extractions, 13 implants, (7 upper, 6 lower), and upper and lower temporary implant mounted dentures. cost 32500-1500 insurance is 31000. 160 every 3 month cleaning thereafter. 2014: permanent upper 16500-800 insurance is 15700. 2015: permanent lower probably another 15700. So far 49000 minus 2300 dental insurance reimbursement is 46700 and with 2015: 16500-800 is 15700 so the total will be 62400 after insurance. Loan interest from GE Capital (CareCredit, now Synchrony) is 14.9% so its been about 450 a month since 2008 with cleaning.

Which Tooth: Entire bottom
Dsabled vet who is on alot of psin meds plus a diabetic who teeth have rotten out or just fell out. I have 2 dental insurance snd still can't get any help. I don't Smile, I have no friends I don't socialize. I think I look hideous so I stay home doing nothing everyday. I have been quoted $3k to $5k and ghsts just the extraction and implant. Hell they want $140 per tooth just to extract and I have 8, insurance will only pay for 50 percent. Fixed income and no help. THE VA Hospital Won't even help. Called dental school which is associated with Emory and the want $500 just to determine how much more they will need. As If I have 500 to give away.

Which Tooth: all
I LOVE MY DENTURES,not implants !!!! Food tastes the same, little to no flopping and a nice tight fit. I occasionally get something crunchy under the bottom plate like tiny pieces of taco shell, bacon or corn meal type on the bottom of pizza crust but other than that I love them and I am now on my 2nd set in 20 yrs. only because I grind my teeth and it made my side a little crooked.

Which Tooth: To daisey in rochester, NY.
THIS GOES TO THE DINGBAT THAT THINKS THE DENTAL STUDENT GETS THE MONEY. NO they do not. The school gets it to help fund the school, to turn out professional dentists. You fill out a form that may ask some questions of your financial background and they will then charge you a very small percentage based upon your financial capabilities. It is supervised by the teachers which are established Doctors of Dentistry. Get your facts straight. Unless you like sticking both feet in your mouth, and sound not too smart.

Co$t of implants-there IS hope!!!!!
Amount: $0.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: leslie sanders in Salina, KS.Posted: October 10th, 2014 02:10AM
Which Tooth: 2 upper left and one upper right
After a "treatment plan" to the tune of $12,330 for implants and crowns for the 3 teeth---I called the University of Kansas Dental School and found that my co$t there was less than HALF of that quoted by my dentist. They also have a credit-card application and if accepted-there is NO interest charged while paying it off. Keep looking and good luck!!!

Which Tooth: bottom right front
I take medications for pain and they are ruining my teeth. Yesterday my bottom right front tooth just broke and fell out. I called my dentist and of course my insurance doesn't cover it. I spent over $3,000 on my teeth in the past 4 years. I am on disability and 55 years old and right now I just do not want to walk around without a front tooth! I am embarrassed to open my mouth! Is there anybody out there who could help me out? Please?

UPPER denture
Amount: $3,000.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Kit McGuire in Payson, AZ.Posted: July 19th, 2014 11:07PM
Which Tooth: FULL upper
I had to have all my upper teeth pulled due to massive infection and near death. Presently using a temporary plastic upper denture that flops around while eating anything. Permanent plate is to be coming the end of August 2014. I only have CareCredit with a $3,000.00 limit. I really hoped and wished for implants but I'm retired on a fixed income. Implants are NOT affordable to everyone as I always see advertised. I know there are grants but my dentist obviously opted to not go that route with me. I still dare not bite on or chew anything hard. Limited to soft foods only!

swiss denture center - ANYONE HAVE INFO W/THEIR WORK
Amount: $0.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: esdeelee in PORTLAND, OR.Posted: May 23rd, 2014 04:05PM
Which Tooth: upper & lower 25 teeth
age 69, petite & small-boned female. I bit into my fave 1/2 pound burger at Burgerville, only to chomp a small stone which broke my upper canine at the gumline,& created a vertical crack in an upper molar. Both teeth 'terminal'. Since the insurance co for the restaurant refused to step up, and Bville did not respond, the 8 to 15K to repair the broken teeth is mine to pay. My CONCLUSION: AT ALMOST 70, with shrinking bones, failing root-canals, the normal age-related loosening of teeth, I can play the "must keep my teeth game", or have all my teeth taken out. I am researching now as to Swiss Denture. Does anyone have any experience with their work?

Free dental work

Which Tooth: All
For those of you that can't afford to pay for a good dentist, you should find a dental school near you. You can get very smart college kids work on your teeth under the direct supervision of theyr teacher. They need to practice on real people before they get licensed

All-On-4 Fixed Bridge Upper Arch with Zirconia Teeth
Amount: $15,000.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Roger in CA in Indianapolis, IN.Posted: May 12th, 2014 12:05PM
Which Tooth: Upper Arch
I had the All-On-4 implant procedure with fixed bridge done in April 2014 at a very good implant center in Indianapolis. I have 4 implants placed on the upper arch. I have a fixed, non-removable bridge screwed to the implants. This is NOT a removable overdenture., that you take out every night. It is removable only by a dentist once a year for maintenance. The teeth on the bridge are made of Zirconia, not the cheap acrylic teeth that some places try to sell you, and which wear down and require replacing in 5-7 years. The teeth and implants have a lifetime warranty. The price includes everything, including all follow-up visits. My local oral surgeon quoted $50,000 for the same procedure!! I did TONS of research and shopped around, and found an incredible price in the Midwest.
