I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. I'm glad you decided to research options for your teeth. You have nothing to worry about with acrylic dentures. Dentures have been made of acrylic resin for decades. This is an excellent material, and your dentures can be made to look very natural.
I know price is a big concern. The cost of extractions and dentures can vary widely. There are variations in cost due to location, and specialists often charge more than general dentists. You'll also find different prices for economy dentures, mid-range dentures and premium dentures, but keep in mind that economy dentures may not fit well. You may want to contact your state dental society to see if they have a listing of local dental fees. The website for the New Mexico Dental Association is www.nmdental.org.
I hope this helps!
