Talking denture implants

I UNDERSTAND THAT DENTURE IMPLANTS CAN NOT BE WORN FOR APROX. 9 MONTHS AFTER THE INITIAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE. HOWEVER MY QUESTION IS: AFTER THEY PLACE THE SCREWS IN THE JAW BONE, WHAT DO YOU WEAR IN PLACE OF THE DENTURE IMPLANT FOR NINE MONTHS; OR ARE YOU EXPECTED TO WALK AROUND WITH SCEWS EXPOSED FROM THE JAW BONE?
I AM CONSIDERING THIS PROCEDURE FOR MY LOWER TEETH, AND WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW HOW MUCH THIS COST, ARE THEY SAFE AND APROXIMATELY HOW LONG DO THE DENTURES LAST BEFORE YOU SHOULD REPLACE THEM?

Kay, a mouth FULL of implants will run you $30,000
(thirty thousand dollars). So I assume just uppers or lowers would be fifteen? The best professional to go to for these would be a gum specialist (periodontist) He Will tell you the price! You will be given dentures right after your extractions (you'll be more comfortable not wearing them because of gum soreness).

I WASN'T REFFERING TO INDIVIDUAL IMPLANTS. I WAS REFFERING TO DENTURE IMPLANTS, THATS WHERE THEY ARE ABLE TO ATTACH A DENTURE PLATE TO YOUR MOUTH WITH THE SIMULAR METHOD OF INDIVIDUAL IMPLANTS. HOWEVER THE DENTURE IMPLANT IS ABLE TO BE REMOVED FOR CLEANING. I BELIEVE YOU THOUGHT I WAS REFFERING TO INDIVIDUAL IMPLANTS WHICH ARE AROUND THE PRICE RANGE YOU HAD POSTED. IF I AM INCORRECT PLEASE REPLY AND LET ME KNOW. MAYBE MY POST WASN'T SPECIFIC ENOUGH. SORRY IF I WAS MISLEADING.

Kay-

I think you are reffering to partial implants i.e. when they place a few implants in to either the upper or lower jaw and then the dentures "snap" on to the implants. The cost of the implants is about $1000-$1500 per implant. Therefore if you need 4 implants to anchor your dentures on the bottom then you are probably talking $4000-$6000 depending on the complexity of your case.

Do a search for "dental impants" on the web. You will find many dentist that have before and after stories with pictures. Do your research. Make sure you find a dentist with TONS of experience, and ask if you can speak to other patients about their experiences with that Dr. You do not want to be the victim of someones learning curve. Also, you may want to meet with several different dentists for consults before you chose one to do the work.

Good luck on your quest!

The Oral Surgeon that will removing my teeth for dentures, will also be doing implants for my dentures in three months. she said the cost depends on how many, as they will give you a "cut" if you have more than two,,,and with having four the cost is 1,350 each.
