Getting rid of your dentures.
It typically starts with a consultation with a dentist that focuses on dental implants in your area. In my practice we do both surgeries and the prosthetics afterwards, so there is no going between surgeons and restorative dentists. But most places will refer you to a surgeon. Make sure you get prices from your restorative dentist and the surgeon and decide on what type of prosthesis works for you. There are many types. They can range from a bridge that has individual crowns, bridge that is one piece, removable dentures on top of implants, to just retentive implants with locators. Prices will vary greatly on what you are planning to get. Also prices and procedures will vary depending on how much bone and quality of bone you have.
Hope this helps!
