What are my Actual Options- $15,000 Budget? Implants/Dentures...? Dental School Clinics?
- 3 months ago
I am a 45 year old man... good teeth not so long ago, but the use of smokeless tobacco and poor habits/hygiene have me in a bad spot the last 3 years... some missing, others decaying... real bad, uppers and lowers. I have not been to the dentist yet, but I have been doing a lot of research on here and in general, the Internet. My question is this: What are my options with this budget of $15000? The nearest dental school to to me is IU School of Dentistry and they certainly seem to have a good reputation; however they are 90 miles away. Yet, given my options this is something I would consider if I could get the Implants there... Are Overdentures or Implant Dentures an option at a regular Dental Practice given my budget. I would love to look at the All on 4 implant dentures, but do not even know if the Dental School Clinic has this option and/or if it would be in my budget? Does anyone have any experience with this Dental School clinic in particular or any others... thoughts on costs and number of trips for this type of procedure? I appreciate the assistance as I am somewhat in a bit of a fog given all the information out there... I would prefer staying in the US; Cincinnati/Dayton/Indy/Louisville/Columbus/Lexington. Thank you again!
