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.
