Dental Implants - My Experiences


12 September 2005

Updated: 16 Dec 2018


 Summary: expensive and not easy to keep clean.





At age 69, lost front upper teeth. Broke off.


I had had implants before and were fine with them.


No experience with removable dentures.


Decision was made to make permanent upper denture.




Was not informed as to total cost and was very cheap new car expensive.


Although functional, not a perfect fit and sore on my tongue from poking upper denture.


Difficult to keep clean.


If you get permanent denture, going to need: "Christmas tree" flossing sticks to clean in between gaps in denture (sold at any pharmacy); a power water floss device to get small particles out in between denture teeth; an electric tooth brush and plenty of mouth wash.
