It's like pulling teeth ---
Today I had a tooth extracted - I somehow managed to crack it in half down to it's root a couple of days ago and went in for emergency surgery today because of the pain.
My dentist recommends a dental implant - but it costs a bloody fortune. My insurance is only good for a small chunk of it - and the rough estimate my dentist gave me was 4K+, which I would have a lot of trouble affording right now.
He claims a bridge isn't that much cheaper, and doesn't last as long.
Anyone have an experience with these procedures? I'm brand new with this dentist because my old one retired. This guy seems okay - but is 4k+ for one tooth insane or normal?
