Oh my! What a shocking experience. My dentist overlooked decay under a crowned tooth which has had a root canal. She said she can't take over the crown, eliminate decay, and place a new crown especially since the decay on Xray goes close to where the two roots join.

So I called a few oral surgeons for a quote, and a few dentists who do the top part.

Oh my! Seems that the 15 minute extraction, then two hours in the dental chair (graft, implant) is a whopping $ 5,500 to $7,000. Then the tooth is $2,000 - $3,000. The total cost for 2.25 hours of work is $7,500 to $10,000.

Someone please explain this outrageous price for one tooth and 2.25 hours of oral surgeon time. Trump and Congress need to investigate.

If anyone knows a more reasonably priced oral surgeon on the San Francisco Peninsula, please private message me or post it here.

You could fly to the UK, have a holiday, and get your dental work done at a private clinic all for a fraction of that cost o_O
