As far as the denture "experience", people's opinions vary wildly - some of us are pretty pleased with the end results while there are others who are exactly the opposite and a whole bunch of people that land in between.
They didn't explain that. And although the dentist was nice, it apparently came down to money. I'm still glad I got it done though.
Reality says you get what you pay for. If you have insurance and a private dentist you'd like to see, I strongly recommend it.
I think you would be foolish to spend so much on dentures. I am assuming most of the cost is the extractions. But I will confine myself to the cost of dentures only. The most important factor is finding a laboratory that is really good at making dentures. I now only go to a practice that specialises in dentures and has a laboratory attached. This I have found ensures well fitting dentures which are really functional. I also think most premium dentures are a bit of a con and that the guideline "you pay for what you get" does not necessarily apply. I pay the US dollar equivalent of about $1000 for my dentures and I would not think of paying more. I am very satisfied with my dentures and I think they look natural (or as natural as dentures can be).
As for extractions of all your teeth, anything over the $3000 to $4000 range would be quite steep to me.
Exhaust all options and do your research!
I thought I’d be able to cope with full upper and lower dentures, but I’m living a life that’s not fun because of dentures. I’ll be borrowing against my retirement to pay for the implants.
Good luck and best wishes on your journey!
