The cost of dental implant is made up of the following:
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that replaces damaged or infected pulp in the tooth’s root canal, with a filling material.It is carried out in the following manner:
The planning stages.
The dental implant surgery to place the implant itself.
The restoration of the crown (the part of the tooth which you see) on top of the dental implant.

Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn't fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don't allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
Like any surgery, dental implant surgery poses some health risks. Problems are rare, though, and when they do occur they're usually minor and easily treated. Risks include:
1. Infection at the implant site
2. Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels
3. Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your natural teeth, gums, lips or chin.
4. Sinus problems, when dental implants placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of your sinus cavities
Wisdom teeth usually cause no problems, but if there isn't enough space for them to grow they can cause pain, swelling, infection or damage to other teeth. Surgical removal (extraction) of one or more wisdom teeth can help to resolve these problems.
Wisdom teeth that are healthy and in the right position usually don’t cause problems. You may have a problem if any of the following occur:
1. Your wisdom teeth break through your gums only partway because of a lack of space. This can cause a flap of gum tissue to grow over them. The flap can trap food and lead to a gum infection.
2. They come in crooked or facing in the wrong direction causing cheek bite and ulcers at times.
1. Pain or jaw stiffness near an impacted tooth.
2. Pain or irritation from a tooth coming in at an awkward angle and rubbing against your cheek, tongue, or top or bottom of your mouth.
3. An infected swelling in the flap of gum tissue that has formed on top of an impacted tooth that has broken partway through the gum.
4. Crowding of other teeth.
