  • I'm older than 50 but I'd get a denture or an implant. Different dentists charge different prices.

  • You can get a fake tooth put in. My dad has a fake top incisor. He busted it out in a snowmobiling accident. My husband, on the other hand, is 25 and can't wait to get dentures since more than half of his teeth are still baby teeth, and after over 20 years, baby teeth are never in the greatest shape.

  • I have 2 missing and i have a retainer with the 2 missing teeth. My mouth is just not made for a bridge even though I would like one.

  • If you can't afford a bridge, how can you expect to afford dentures?
