I am 45 yrs old, I have not had dental insurance since I was 26 yrs old, and I have not been to the dentist in 15yrs. The last few visits to the dentist I did have were the lowest cost treatments, and they pulled nearly all my top teeth and gave me a partial. My experiences were very negative, and I am scared to death of dentists now. At any rate, you can imagine the condition of my remaining teeth and my gums, and I am starting to suspect they are now making me ill. I realize dental care has come a long way in 15 yrs, but I still have no insurance, so I suspect my next visit will mean getting dentures, My question: Can you tell me the cost difference between going for implants vs. dentures? All my wisdom teeth are gone, I am missing only one molar on the bottom, and have only 3 teeth remaining (molars) on the top. If they were not to pull my bottom teeth, I would definitely require multiple root canals, which I just cannot afford. I have kept up with my teeth, and I still smile all the time, but you know there is more to oral hygiene than that. So, Dentures vs. implants? Thank you.
