I was around 30 when I first got dentures. both upper and lower! I was in so much pain from abcesses and decay, not that I didn't take care of my teeth. I did. I had weak enamel. Any way getting my teeth pulled and getting dentures was the best thing I could've done for myself! I just picked up my new pair today. my old ones broke. I don't have implanted dentures. So I can't help you there. Having been through what you're going through i would say do it. My self esteem and confidence has gone way up. i look good, I can eat anything I want and no one knows I'm wearing dentures!
