Hi..for patient with history of radiation therapy should not attempt for implant supported denture. It will be sure failure. Conventional dentures are best. Go with same procedure as explained by your dentist whom you have consulted
Filling of gaps after removal of teeth varies from patient to patient. That is why your dentist has called you after 20 days. In case your gum sockets are not healed fully after 20 days then he must not start the treatment of complete denture making and advice you to wait for another set of span. there are many qualities of dentures available through labs. Normal (Rs.10,000 and above), colored-lucitone (Rs. 15,000 and above) and flexi denture (Rs. 30,000 and above). flexi or semi flex dentures have good retention properties and thus have better fit in mouth.
There are a variety of treatment modalities available depending on the condition of the existing bone structure.
1.There is immediate dentures where in dentures are placed immediately after removing the teeth .
2.complete dentures after removing remaining teeth and after a waiting period of 3 to 4 months depending on the healing of the bone.
3.Implant retained dentures
4.full implants .
The cost varies from clinic to clinic and also from place to place.you can sit with your dentist and go through all the options and choose the best one suiting you.
I suggest you wait for one month or two months ,also fine,give time to heal
Go for normal dentures
