Saved me at least 20 to 30k on my implants
(Provi, Utah, USA)
I am 46 years old that has had bad teeth his whole life. Every one of my teeth had root canals and this was before I was 25. I had periodontal disease, etc, no dental insurance and by the time I was 40 I had lost almost all of my teeth.
I was very embarassed and didn't want to go to a dentist. I was thinking that dentures were my only alternative. I then heard about dental implants. I went to about 10 different dentists/specialists to see how much it would cost to do implants with dentures. For my whole, I was quoted between 30-80k. This was out of my price range.
I then thought about going to Mexico. I did some research and found that most of those dentists did mini implants and had a high failure rate. Also, they really couldnt do palletteless dentures (which is important).
I stumbled on to this place where they teach dentists how to do implants. I had 4 implants on the bottom and 4 on the top with some bone grafting. the surgery wasn't too pleasant. I am in my 3rd month and they will be placing my bottoms in next month and the tops in about 4 weeks after my bottoms.
I was able to do the whole thing for less than 8k. So far, everything is going great. The only consession I had to make is that they video taped and 37 dentists observed my procedure. No big deal as it saved me at least 20 to 30k on my implants.
I'll update with before and after photos...
