Re: Help! My mom is in agony!

I cannot remove mine. My teeth aren't ever removed for cleanings. They could be if I had a problem but only by my Prosthodontist.

Titanium is metal? I have titanium implants with a implant retained prosthesis (a fancy name for the teeth I have) I have for my lowers titanium covered in acrylic and for my uppers gold covered by porcelain. Should I ever need to replace my teeth for any reason I would have to pay around $30,000. So at $18,000 that is a lot less. There is a credit card called Care Credit I think. It permits you to get your dental work done and make payments. It would be an investment in her life.

My teeth are only like a denture in the sense all the teeth are in one unit. That is the only comparison. They are not made from the same material. They are stronger and more natural looking.
