    I thought about getting some, but the cheapest I could find was $900 bucks a tooth. How much are they on the left coast?

    Make sure you walk into that place with GOOD HEALTH and CONFIDENCE.

    Because it sounds like the DENTIST has DOUBTS thus the BREAKS.

    I dont have them but I talk to a dentist who mention it is quite expensive and a trying ordeal.

    Just some insurance on your PART.

    What you mean "a trying ordeal"? I'm allergic to pain.

    Remember: You get what you pay for*

    Getting dental implants can be a long or short term experience and can be expinsive but what is the alternative to restoring proper dental health so that one can chew food properly to say the least. Most dentist have a long drawn out process that take up to 6+months to compleat the process but for those who don't have the time but have the mone...they can get their implants in about 3 days...but it cost. Hollywood and entertainers have all ways known about the 3 to 5 day total (Grill) make over that soo meny of the acters and artist display all of a sudden. http://www.thesmilesdr.com/html/dental implants.htm
