I recently added a new line of dental implants, the Paltop implants by Keystone Dental. We also carry Straumann, NobelBiocare, and Dentsply Astra Tech implants. To help launch the Paltop implants I am offering one free Paltop implant and healing abutment to a TGT member. The implant will be placed under IV sedation unless you want to be awake. I normally charge $1300 to place the first implant and $1000 for each additional. I also charge $125 for a healing abutment on implants. Eligibility: The patient or patient's spouse, parent, or child must be a TGT member for at least 3 months AND must have at least 50 posts. How to win: Reply to the thread & let me know you are in. I'll shut down the entries at midnight on April 30, draw a name on May 1, and announce the winner. Here are the rules: 1. There is no guarantee. If the implant fails I will not replace it for free and I do not owe you anything. 2. You must complete the implant placement surgery by 6/28/2019. 3. I am only giving away the dental implant & healing abutment. Bone grafts, gum grafts, and final abutments each cost extra if needed. Someone must place a final abutment, either me or your dentist or prosthodontist. 4. YOU MUST ALLOW THE SURGERY TO BE FILMED & PUT ON THE INTERNET. Your face will not intentionally be shown in full but people may still recognize you. 5. If you want/need additional Paltop implants I will discount each additional implant to $950. 6. If you need extractions they will be billed at my normal price. Extractions are $300 for the first erupted tooth or $400 for the first impacted tooth. Additional erupted teeth are $150, additional impacted teeth are $275 each. 7. I do not make the fake teeth to put on the implant. You will need a general dentist or prosthodontist to make the tooth and they will bill you for it. I can recommend restorative doctors in the San Antonio area. Let me know if there are any questions. If I need to change something to get a better response let me know as well. I am open to reasonable suggestions. Remember, implants are metal. They do not get decay & cavities. They do get gum disease. If you do not maintain them, and sometimes even if you do maintain them, implants can get gum disease which causes the bone & gums to shrink away from the implant. The implant gets loose and can be lost. This shows you the three parts of a dental "implant". Technically the implant is only the screw in the bone. The abutment in this picture is a final abutment. If you need to replace more than one tooth then you would have a bridge attached to the abutment instead of a single crown. This shows you the idea behind a healing abutment. A healing abutment just creates a nice hole through the gums leading to the implant. After the gums heal then the appropriate size & shape final abutment can be selected. The healing abutment is unscrewed and the final abutment is torqued in place.
