Implants I have two Cochlear implants. They allow me to understand speech. They also DO NOT give a true impression of one’s voice. The one that bothered me the most was not hearing ‘the Sherry’ I have heard for over 61 years. I am learning to recognize her voice because basically we are with each other 24/7. So in my case, implants are a plus, the negatives I can live with.
But this post is not about my implants, but about ‘teeth implants.’ Our sons have always had dental problems. Their teeth were not too good. Now son-Mark wants an entire mouth of implants. I have tried to read up on them. I am learning a little. The one thing you do learn is they are expensive. I mean ‘new car’ price expensive.
Do you have, or do you know of anyone who has multiple implants, and how practical and satisfactory are they?
There are some “permanent dentures” that use maybe 6 implants to hold the plate in place. Some that have two implants and hold less permanent dentures in place.
NOW the toss of the dice. Teeth implants are a choice. Men and women have dealt fairly well with dentures over the years at ‘relatively reasonable’ costs. If one gets a bad fitting set of dentures they can keep going back to have them ‘adjusted’. I am not sure that is an option with implants
I am just hoping to get some information from here as well as from the net.
The first question in my mind, is Mexico a good alternative. Mark mentions going to the Dominican Republic. We have never visited there. The DomRep shares the Eastern end of the same body of land Haiti does. I haven’t checked air fare to there nor looked for comments of folks who have had implants there. Imma do that.
Just tossing it out there, what do you think?
It was called 'customizing'. The rage in the 50-60s. One feature of this one "It is shaved", meaning the only protrusions would be the mirror and a spot light. No door handles nor hood ornaments.
