I recently had a back tooth extracted leaving two back bottom teeth missing. I went to the dentist and was told that I could not have a bridge the other option being a denture clip on which I dont like the idea of, I would be worried that I might swallow or even choke on it if it came away from gum. I am finding it difficult to chew food properly on left side of mouth and am considering dental implants would I have to pay as i am on income support and disability living allowance?

i have my four front teeth cracking and breaking off would like to get implants but dont think i can afford them.So my question is how much would it cost and is there a dental school in ok or tx that would do it for less?I am so embarresed by my teeth and my self-esteem has been lowered because of it.Thankyou for your time on this

You could try a teaching hospital but I’m afraid that its very difficult to get implants, you might have to consider a denture or a bridge

Hello and thank you for listning to me my dentist told me that my implant would take about 4-6 months to settle into my jaw. It’s been over 5 months now and it still feels a little sore at time, am i worrying over nothing, or will i have to wait longer for the implant to completely heal and feel comfortable? I don’t really have the money to have the treatment again, so it’s kind of an all or nothing kind of situation thank you for this

It should not feel sore after more than a couple of weeks. I would revisit your surgeon for reassurance.
