More info needed: What is the condition of your remaining teeth? If in decent shape and strong, then make a partial. It would be more comfortable than a full denture. Extraction is a one way street, and since you can't afford implants, you will be wearing a full denture for the next 30 to 40 years if you extract your teeth now.
