Yes, it very painful at first to have dental implants. I had 4 implants put in in June,2009 and will not finish
up until Feb. 2010. My temporary bottom teeth feel real good now and I just hope the real ones will be the same. I think it will all be worth it.

I had one of my implants to get infected. It was removed and a little bone was put in place and another implant was put in. It was not a big deal in relation to all the other process.

sorry that I've double posted..
this is an interesting subject.. especially to the guy who doesn't have dentures yet.. the site has made me sit back and make some decisions in advance.. my kid has just gotten dentures.. he lives an another state and we seem to only talk via the net.. like some of you his lower plate slips a lot.. he eats without it.. has no shame.. posted a toothless photo on facebook.. <groan>
what I have read about the posts is that they also keep your jaw bone (not sure the top is jaw bone) both upper and lower from deteriorating.. thus keeping your face looking about the same.. one article I read said that your face sags before you leave the office.. have any of you seen this ?
the midi implants seem to have high failure rate.. because they are short they can break when they are screwed in.. because the bone might be hard or over torque.. although they are easier and quicker to put in than the implants.. plus they can be put in right away.. they just screw into the bone thru the gum..
implants must have a hole drilled then screwed in.. the gum covers them.. when the gum heals then a connector is added and the denture is snapped on.. as I understand it this also keeps the denture from actually sitting on the gum.. you must have 4 on the top denture and can get by with 2 on the bottom.. they are expensive as well.. can range from 1200 to 1800 bucks each.. my guy wants 1750 each.. the upper dentures is built in the shape of an arch instead of having to cover the entire palate... this is great for people who otherwise cannot wear full dentures because they make them gag...
