So if you used it and went to eat with friends, would you warn them before you took it out or just try to be sneaky? Or none of the above? ��

I'd probably leave it in and pretend I wasn't hungry!

Are you still planning to use the guy who is charging $9k? That sounds excessive to me.

I had an implant done last year, and all in (including extraction, 2 bone grafts, implant, and crown) the cost was $6k.

Thanks to excellent dental insurance through my employer, I paid 50% - just $3k.

I've never heard of dental insurance that was so generous, good for you.

I did go back but I first negotiated the cost down to 6,400. That does not include the final crown.

Wow - great job on negotiating the cost down!

I am VERY lucky with the benefit package I have - all part of the "golden handcuffs."

Just remember not to leave flipper wrapped in the napkin on the table. My friend son did that, and waiter tossed it to the garbage. Her son had to go to the back of restaurant and sort thru the garbage to retrieve it. Good luck with the implant.☺️
