This is so not a sexy topic!! I'm currently considering becoming toothless and wearing a full set of dentures (Plan C) as the money I need to spend to preserve the teeth I've got left (Plan A) (the front and bottom half) is really more than I can afford. It would have to come out of my emergency fund, and I'm not sure the situation is enough of an emergency to warrant the expenditure.
I'm wondering if full dentures will be such a miserable experience that I should spend whatever it takes to preserve the teeth I've got. It seems that there are a whole lot of people who do just fine with dentures. Plan B (for two implants) is to get the second half of the work done in Mexico by a highly recommended a dentist there who is expensive by Mexican standards but much more affordable than my dentist. I'd have to make two trips there and have the support of my dentist at least for the follow-up.
The advice of anyone with experience of full dentures would be appreciated. I had half dentures before and found them very uncomfortable, and as result they became so poorly aligned that I couldn't use them anymore. So on the one hand, I tell myself spend the money and avoid the discomfort. On the other hand, I say it is only teeth - not my life, not my vision, not my limbs.
