   I have one bad tooth. One.

Its the ONLY cavity I have ever had, and 8 years ago it required a root canal with a crown. I've had the crown re-seated once. Last week it broke off entirely. I went to the dentist yesterday and there is not enough of the original tooth left to rebuild on - what's left of it has to be extracted and they are suggesting replacing it with a dental implant. The dentist I went to is charging $5,000 for the whole bit - extraction, implant and crown. It is lower left #2 molar. #3 molar and wisdom teeth are intact.

Besides being extremely nervous about the pain, procedure and cost, I have some questions:

1) Can I have the old tooth extracted without getting the implant immediately? Meaning, going without that tooth for a term...

2) If so, how long is too long to wait to get the implant?

3) Is there a better option? NOT a bridge!

I am going to get a second opinion and hopefully a less expensive estimate, but if anyone has any experience with dental implants, I would certainly like to hear about it, unless it is going to scare me even more :)
