Hello...Implants will be advised depending on clinical and radiographic examination which estimates bone support needed for implant placement.The procedure will be done under anesthesia which causes numbness in operating area so need not worry about it.The cost varies from dentist to dentist and the type of material being used.

The cost of implants varies from dentist to dentist and also depends on the quality of implants.Usually the entire procedure and the costs are discussed beforehand.Proper anaesthesia is given before starting the procedure so it should not pain at all.Medicines will be prescribed for few days which will help recover you better along with few precautions that you would need to take.

The cost of dental implants, just like any other treatment modality, varies from dentist to dentist depending upon the location, experience and type of implants used..... please have a detailed discussion with your dentist before the procedure is planned so that all the queries can be sorted out before hand to avoid any confusion in the future..... also understand that this will be an absolutely painless procedure because it is done under local anaesthesia...... the post operative pain or discomfort will be minimum if you follow the instructions given by a dentist meticulously.... Regards.....

Hoping that there are no medical conditions and not on any prescription medication, we can assume that there would be a normal healing process of 3 to 4 months. What often mentioned forefront is just the cost of the implant ( clarify if bone graft is inclusive or additional). Secondly the prosthesis ( crown & bridge) will be second stage which will incur additional cost depending on the design. Clarify this with your dentist for confirmation on pricing. There are multiple implant systems, so cost of that would vary.

Dental implants cost anywhere between Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 60,000 per implant depending upon the brand/ make/type of implant used and any additional procedure involved (eg. Sinus lift/ grafting).
The total treatment lasts 3-4 months since it is necessary for the implant to integrate with the bone before the crowns can be placed. There are however, normally only 5-6 appointments in this time period.
Since the procedure is under local anaesthesia, it is totally painless. And the doctor will prescribe medication to make sure she is comfortable after the procedure too. It is said that implant surgery is less painful than tooth extraction.
Do your research and visit a dentist who is competent and gives you a proper estimate of the treatment plan before starting, such that no hidden costs can arise later. Don't just go with your cheapest option and compromise on the quality of treatment.
