3 weeks ago I had a crown removed from top/back molars


Hello Doctor, hope you are well

3 weeks ago I had a crown removed from top/back molars due to an infection. Would I be able to have an implant, if so how soon and roughly what cost?

Thanks for your time 


A. Thanks for your question. You haven’t said whether the whole tooth has been removed or if if it is no longer suitable for a new crown. Generally you would need to allow time for any infection in the area to heal and for the oral health to be in great condition before embarking on a surgical procedure for dental implants. This will vary from person to person and will also depend on how large the infection was. Costs for dental implants vary but as a general ball park figure you should budget in the region of £2,000 per restored implant, but these costs can vary and you would need a consultation to get a full treatment plan with more specific estimated costs for you.
