dental implant for the replacement of fallen crown

Q. I have previously (5 yrs ago) had root treatment and a crown on my to second pre-molar. Last weekend the crown, which covered most of the area of the tooth, fell out. Today I visited a dentist and apparently I now don’t have enough tooth on show to have another crown (my gum has already covered over the area) the root is also not in the best condition for this. So this would mean my options are a denture, a bridge or an implant. Not keen to get a denture, the bridge I’m guessing may cause problems down the line for my other surrounding teeth. So what kind of price would I be looking at for an implant? And is this a more “permenant” solution? Many thanks.
A. Hi If the teeth either side of the space are intact then an implant is the best option. Implants vary in price from @£1500 upwards, although in our clinic we start at @£3000 IMHO but you really do get what you pay for. Hope this helps Nick
