I am getting two dental implants. One on tooth number seven. The other on tooth number eleven. The cost is just a bit over $9,000 which is quite a pretty penny. I feel at that price I should expect some quality work. Here is my concern. I have had both teeth extracted and have been… Continue reading Should I Switch Implant Dentists?
