Re: Considering Lower Denture Implant
These are very good questions.
Many times it is good to insert an implant immediately after extraction but it doesn't have to be, that is for certain. Yes, you could try a lower denture but keep in mind the expense of it, if you don't like it and the fact that lower dentures have far less retention (suction power) so they may feel more uncomfortable than your upper.
I think that your dentist has a good plan in mind for you, and what you are suggesting is a viable alternative in my opinion.
