    Hello All, I am new to the forum. I have questions, I need 12 teeth on bottom removed ( all that is left) and wanted to get either 4 implants and a snap on denture and was quoted all in cost with extractions, implants and denture ( $14,500) or all on 4 ( not sure the cost), can anyone tell me if they have had either done and what it cost?

    Hi Dean,
    The most important question you need to answer is "what do you have on the top?" If you have natural teeth or crowns & bridges on the top, then you're going to be miserable with a lower denture. Considering going for all-on-4 teeth if this is the case. On the other hand, if you already have an upper denture, then going for a lower denture is not a bad idea. Typically, all-on-4 teeth is more than double the cost of dentures. In my practice I charge 15k for an all-on-4, but based on your dentist's pricing, I'm guessing he charges around 25-35k. If you'd like to learn more about what exactly all-on-4 teeth are, you can read my article on is all-on-four the right choice for me? Hope this helps and best of luck.
