Hello, Actually the condition you have mentioned is very common in many of the patients. If cost is the factor, what treatment you already had is perfect. But as our previous fallow dentist suggested , if you can spend little more than removable denture you can easly go for implant supported denture which is obviously a better option. We can only suggest different treatment options which solve your problem, but you can wisely choose from those options - cost benefit ratio and pros cons of all treatment opetions. Regards. Take care.

Hello, ya its fine... But in compared to fixed teeth.... Efficiency of removable teeth is not much... N because of denture day by day her bone support will get weak and denture will get loose. So in my opinion if cost matters, then u can go for semi fixed denture. That is Implant Supported denture. Its cost will be more than removable denture but not upto total fixed teeth. For more information u can visit my clinic by taking a prior appointment
