Due to a childhood illness, I lost my teeth at age 26. after 33 years of dentures I could barely eat because of pain under my tongue from denture due to bone loss. I began to have trouble with lower denture when I read about implants. I quickly made an appointment.
My lower denture is secured by 4 implants. Luckilly I had enough bone but could not do the top without bone graft.
I was 65 when work was finished = I am now 88. Never any trouble. Still have upper denture but top never did bother me. Best money I ever spent after many years of dentistry as a young girl. It is like having my own teeth again.
I have had no problems with my teeth since. If you can afford it it is well worth the cost and discomdort from the surgery at the time.
Remember my implants are 23 years old and there...

It no longer takes so long to put the implants in - just a fraction of the time I spent with the surgeon. The cost $15,000 was
partially based on the cost of the gold used to support the denture. You don't see the gold as it is covered by the teeth and gums.
I only hope every one has the excellent results I have had.

I was lucky enough to have the work done by Dr B who was among the first to do this procedure. I had wanted to do the upper too but needed bone graft. Since upper plate fits extremely well no problems. Dr B spent a lot of time with me as much as with some of the well known patients he has had. I can never thank him enough.
