I think your dentist is proposing for you  to have mini implants. If you had an existing set of dentures they could be used as part of that procedure but as you have lost additional teeth it is not an option.

Dentistry is no different to other sectors in that you pay more for brands that spend money on marketing, premium brand for flexible dentures is Valplast but an alternative may be 40% cheaper and do the same thing ie Sunshine but depends on what the dentist is trained in.

Flexible acrylic dentures are a private option and hold to the gums better and hence you will have fewer problems with consuming a varied diet and therefore you require only 2  mini implants to retain when other dentures may require 4 mini implants. You will pay more for the flexible denture but save on the surgical in requiring only 2 mini implants.

I have heard from patients that flexible dentures are life changing so to add mini implants  with a flexible dentures it should be great and good value as it should last for 10yrs + 

You should be able to bag interest free credit as most provide it now

 

 

( not a dentist but work on the commercial side) 

 

thanks  will investigate some more once bone density scan is done

tom thats impressive looks really good 

Since then I’ve had another done on the top as when I was on a ventilator with COVID in April they knocked one out when turning me over. They were very apologetic when I was brought out of the coma. That was the last thing I was bothered about at the time.
