Can I have all my teeth taken out and replaced with dentures I am nervous so need sedation

Q. Firstly i have a fear of Dentists and have not been to see A dentist for about ten years. I was wondering if its possible to have all my teeth taken out and have dentures fitted as i now have broken and missing teeth. Also could you tell me how much this would cost as im on a low income.


A. There are a number of dentists who offer sedation. Please seek these dentists out before committing to loosing all your teeth. With sedation you may be able to end up with a good result without having to wear full dentures for the rest of your life – there us no comparison between eating food with your own teeth compared to plastic teeth no matter how well the dentures are made. I am unable to give you an estimate for treatment without having your situation properly assessed.

Kindest regards
