Re: Dentures or Partial?
I can't tell you what's best for you, but I've had both upper and lower dentures for 30 years with no problems. It was such a relief not to have to keep shelling out big bucks, I only wish I had gotten full dentures sooner. If you feel you will ultimately need a complete lower denture, it might make sense to do it sooner rather than later. Dentists, of course, keep telling us we should keep our own teeth as long as we can, no matter what the cost.
If I had big bucks, I would go with the snap-on "all on 4" dental implants which consist of implanted posts that provide stability for removable existing dentures. This procedure is especially good for lower dentures and can be done anytime so you don't have to pay for the dentures you already have.
