How old do you have to be to get crooked teeth pulled for dentures?

Crooked teeth: Why would you pull teeth for dentures if they are crooked? It's better to keep your teeth as long as you can. Dentures are like a wooden leg. They will work but will never be the same or as comfortable. Visit with a dentist and orthodontist before you decide to pull teeth. ...Read more

Timing, scheduling, workload and ultimately price are all factors affecting your desired outcome. The best advice anyone can give you is this: find someone you trust ( or are referred to) and have a frank discussion about what you would like to accomplish! ...Read more

My 58yr old dad wants to get all his teeth pulled. Will wait 3wks for dentures. He thinks he'll be able to eat meat. What else should I warn him of?

It's a big change!: Dentures are a replacement for no teeth...They're not a replacement for teeth. Difficult to get used to...Covers the roof of the mouth, so eating/talking is difficult at first. If any teeth are salvageable, a partial denture is easier to tolerate...If he can afford implants, a "denture" can be made to attach to them without covering the roof of his mouth... But if he's patient a denture is ok. ...Read more

Due to my poor choices, i now have to have all my teeth pulled and get dentures. (no other options) is it safe for me to be sedated with my BP issues?

Discuss w/ surgeon: Sedation is generally safe and can be used on patients with multiple medical conditions, but you should be discussing this with your oral surgeon.

I need to get all my teeth pulled and dentures. My ins covers 50-80%. How much will i pay out of pocket. And can they pull all of them at one time?

I need to get all my teeth pulled and dentures. My ins covers 50-80%. How much will i pay out of pocket. And can they pull all of them at one time?

Dental Insurance: Is sadly a joke. It is more of an assistance program, a contribution of $1000 or $1500 or whatever your yearly max is. The term "insurance" is misleading and should be revised. It would be best to understand the full cost by your dentist for the total work and then budget accordingly prior to getting started. Whatever the "insurance" contributes would be less that you owed. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Go : Go back to your dentist and have them take an x-ray to verify the presence of a bone fragment. However a bone fragment early on during this process would not cause that much pain unless it is infected. On the other hand if the extraction was a bit traumatic to the site itself, 6 days may still be too early to start feeling better. ...Read more
