The Dental implant surgeon did implant surgery Extraction #23, 24, 25 and 27 followed by immediate implant fixture placement at #23 and 27 lower teeth 5 months ago and went back to my surgeon they take scans and he said every thing looks good. I have to see my dentist for the implant crown.

What confused me is that the surgeon said he will order the materials and I will pick-up and taken it to the dentist. I am not sure what materials go to the dentis

Usually the surgeon's office send the implant parts (screws, impression copings, etc) to your dentist's office. We don't like for patients to touch them because any missing pieces can be a headache and waste of time to recover.

Usually I order all the components myself so the details appear on my invoices for my records, and for the patient. Unfortunately had to do this when one lab I dealt with tried to give me a cheaper copy.

It is important for the dentist, surgeon and yourself to keep records of the parts because if you were to have problems with your implant and go to another dentist or that dentist & surgeon retired, moved, etc., the parts information will save everyone a lot of trouble.

From my Electronic Records, D6066 & D6069 are both $1201. D6066 is the crown, D6069 is the metal part that screws into the implant under the crown. You need to have both the crown and the abutment to connect the implant screw.

For the Implant Bridge He gave two options

one option is D6069_D6240 and 6057

second D6066_D6240 and D6057

Sorry, I won't have access to the codes until Monday. The key is to trust your dentist and surgeon. Ask them what the difference and pros and cons. If you are unsure, never commit especially surgery.

D6240 is Pontic Porcelain fused to high noble metal $1055

D6057 is custom abutment $855.

Please provide the whole treatment plan. I don't do implants but I'm covering for a dentist that does and I can run it by his manager.
