Well, since I can't tolerate the discomfort of dentures, I really need to get at least two implants to keep my remaining teeth in order. My dentist is currently in training with a specialist, and has offered to do the job for half price, a bit over £1000 each, plus a bone graft! It will be ruinous financially, but I really want to keep the few teeth I have left. It's frightening as well, although he says there should be no pain, I don't trust him (or ANY dentist...) It's a lengthy business and all. My cold's clearing up, anyway, unless getting chilled to the bone in the park this morning gives me a relapse.
