I went in to consult about ONE implant for missing teeth on my lower back mouth. After the CT scan, the saleslady told me the Doctor would talk to me, which he did.
I was told that I would need a full lower set of implants, and that I did not have enough bone for a single implant. I was also told that I would "lose my teeth in the next 2 years or so anyway, due to periodontal disease". Cost.....a mere $20,000 (the exact amount that I was approved for!). Regretfully, I had all my bottom teeth pulled and a full lower implant placed.
Pain was minimal post-op, but I absolutely hate the way my face looks now! It has made me look so much older facially! The entire structure of my face changed..and not for the good! I should never have taken their advise without getting a second opinion.
I was very *** and entirely too trusting. I hate how I look. I hate the added hassle I have by having implants. I hate that I was taken advantage of.
My advise....SAVE YOUR OWN TEETH!
Do whatever you need to do to save them! Having "dentures" is a pain in the ***!!
Monetary Loss: $20000.
