Hi all, I'm 46 and just found out I need dentures. After many many years of hightech infertility treatment I finally had our angel 3 years ago. I do NOT want to feel older than I already do. I'm just starting this process and have looked everywhere for costs etc.

I know Angel has graciously listed what she paid & I'm hoping those of you that feel comfortable enough will help the rest of us. So - how much were your mini implants, fixed dentures, hybrid, over denture etc? I'm hoping someone in the U.S. is cheaper and we all don't have to fly to the ends of the earth to get implants lol Even if you were quoted something somewhere & didn't use them let us know.(obviously prices change and sometimes there are extenuating circumstances so we all know these are appx figures & were quoted "for you" - but hey it will give us an idea!!!)

I want the All on 4 or some other type on non removable denture (dentist removes for cleaning) but my dentist told me in my initial consultation that it would be around $50,000. I'm in Cincinnati, OH & I can't find anyone who advertises or lists on their site that they do the all on 4 or non removable dentures. Some places call them fixed bridge dentures or hybrid or all on 4 etc. I meet with my "specialist" next week to come up with a game plan & discuss final costs. If it is $50k then I definitely need to look elsewhere. Anyone have a suggestion in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana?

Thank you VERY much for your help!!!

Shop around!!! You don't have to spend ANYWHERE NEAR $50,000!!! I had 5 implants placed in my upper jaw (not the instant-load implants used in all-on-four clinics). My implants cost $1300 each. My hybrid denture cost approximately $8000. These prices included everything. My hybrid denture stays in the mouth. It is only removable by a dentist. It's about as close to having your own teeth as a person can get.

There are millions of unhappy denture wearers. Most do not realize they don't have to suffer from depression. The hybrid denture on 4 or 6 implants solves most of the complaints people have about wearing dentures. It stays in the mouth. You use a water-pic, toothbrush and floss, for oral hygiene. If you are suffering from depression because you wear dentures, I highly recommend an implant-supported bridge or denture. For many people, it can be the end of their nightmare. It was the end of mine!!! You'll never have to use denture adhesive ever again. I hated using that gunk and I never felt like my mouth was clean. Now I feel like my mouth is always clean and I look like I have beautiful teeth :)

I just had all on four implants, upper and lower. The dentist placed the provisional prosthesis. However, the prosthesis is very bulky and poorly made. Certainly isn't fully functional as I cannot chew and cannot stop biting my tongue. Her answer was that that is considered functional and I wouldn't be "provisional" if it was. I don't like that answer as she is usually a conscientious dentist. Can someone tell me if its normal to have plastic almost a third down my palate and incomplete teeth on the inner sides of the prosthesis. This is a fixed bridge denture and I cannot clean it.

I haven't actually seen any ( http://www.mybite.ca/teeth_in_a_day.html )all on four yet. Though that could just be because I'm looking for them. My friend in Edmonton has some. Maybe he'll show me, just for the sake of letting me see them.

I had 23 teeth removed and immediate dentures put in. I will need to return as many times as needed for adjustments. The cost was just over $10k. I have a credit pay plan and if I pay off in 2 years there will be no interest charged. Bad thing is my dentist is 2 hrs away, so the gas bill is adding up quickly.

I am on Day 5 of dentures and certainly not loving it yet. Now Im kinda wishing I had gone to Mexico for implants.

Thought I'd contribute here. We are being quoted $2300 per implant for regular implants -- plus a few hundred for exams/Xrays.

I don't know what's a 'provisional' denture? But I am sure an implant-supported denture (i.e., denture is attached to implants and hold in place by implants only) should function well enough to almost mimic real teeth (e.g., eating, talking, etc.) And for my personal requirement, the denture should sit and cover the top of your ridge only, no other gum and mouth inside area is covered by any part of the denture (i.e., streamline denture). If any part of your mouth side get hurt after dentures are attached (fixed) to implants, I suggest you go to your dentist (or surgeon) asking him/her take off the dentures and checking out the issue.

Is it better to get single implants or the all-on-4? Is the all-on-4 as functional as your real teeth...feel,talk,eat,etc?

I didn't have any idea that this type of thing even existed. Wow. Getting the $5000 for the extractions, partials, and repairs was a chore, and a struggle for my family. But 14 days in to this experience tells me I probably want to start saving for something better. Thank you for bringing my attention to this other option.

You can get a hybrid denture with a titanium frame made from 4 to 6 thousand through a technician, with 10 year warranty on frame.(Thats in Australia.) Zirconia can still chip but offers a more natural look depending on the technician making the prosthesis.. So depending on your bone density will require how many implants you actually need.. So say each implant is 2000 plus the 5000 for the hybrid denture should give you a rough idea of costing.

I am on recovery day 7 right now. I went to Mexico, had 26 teeth removed, bone surgery, temporary dentures that I'll wear the first month or two. A full perm set, with all future adjustments included in the price of $2900.00. (Included was all X-rays, work ups etc..) It was the best decision I have made. Granted I was miserable the first few days, and regretted it, but after the swelling went down, I'm happy, smiling and have self confidence I haven't had in years.

How was it going to Mexico for your work to be done? Where did you go to have the work done?

I've done quite a bit of research on this topic and one thing we must always remember is - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!

For full mouth restoration, with removal of all existing natural teeth, you basically have the following options: traditional dentures, with Low, Medium and High grade dentures available that will run you from about $300 to about $5000; implant-supported removable fixed-bridges that snap on and off and cover some of the gum, though not as much as a traditional dentures, with costs between $15-30k; and implant-supported, permanent fixed-bridges, which you do not remove and which sit flush with the gum and do not cover it. This procedure can cost from $30k to $70k+.

With the implant-supported bridges, you also have the options of "traditional" placement, which requires 6 months of healing between the extractions and implant placement and another 6 months of healing between the implant placement and the placement of the hybrid teeth. During the healing, you must wear some type of "traditional" denture, or go toothless. I've priced this option out locally (CENTRAL FLORIDA) and the total came to $69k.

OR, you can have an "all-in-one-day" procedure. With this procedure, the extractions, implant placement, and placement of the "provisional" bridge is done in one day. The "provisional" bridge is a bit bulky and the back insides of the teeth are not "teeth material". The reason for this is that you still need to heal and these teeth are created so that you do not put pressure on sensitive areas. These teeth, usually acrylic, are worn for 4-6 months, and then a set of natural-looking porcelain hybrid bridges are placed, that sit flush to the gums. TOTAL cost of all of this, and 2 years warranty and follow-up, at the center I'm looking at in Central Florida, is $43k. When you consider that this cost includes: surgeon's fee, anesthesia, anesthetic nurse, extraction surgery, implant surgery, 10 titanium implants, full set of acrylic teeth, full set of porcelain teeth, 2 yrs warranty, 2 years of cleaning and follow-up appts, the price is actually very understandable and very reasonable.
