Very costly, but I have always dreaded lower dentures. Made the decision today to move forward with it. Plans are in motion and within a week or so will have a date to have remaining 6 lower teeth removed and implants put in to hold dentures. Will take 3 to 4 month for them to heal so I can get the permanent dentures. So will have to wear regular ones during that time.
Here is hoping this works as intended and will be a happy camper by mid summer.
Update: Had impressions taken today, March 12, for dentures to wear until implants heal. Will soon get a date for the dental surgery.
