Denturist ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a good '' bootleg '' denturist ?

 

I had a complete upper denture made back in the early 70s by a legitimate dentist at Broadview and Gerrard for $75. after I lost mine swimming in the Otonabee River in Peterborough...

 

Today they want $2000 to $3000 for an upper and lower partial for my wife...

 

I too would like to have my lower partial made into a full denture if that is possible but at my age (80) I avoid long term investments so it looks like I will have to let my dentist keep getting rich off the four lower teeth I have...

 

Feel free to PM me...

Have you tried to carve them out of wood............LOL....JK

 

I know when I was in college I knew this girl that made them for dentist.....they would bring in the impressions and she would make them from there........the dentist cost $35........the patient cost $350.

 

Good Luck and I hope you score on some reasonable priced teeth.

Maybe check the dental schools/universities?

My brother in-law got complete uppers done for the cost of the material. Mind you it's students performing the work; but they are well supervised.

I bet Big Cliff can whittle you some. Having lost all medical benefits I only recently became aware of costs, I never realized how expensive it is. I went into see my Dentist as I am having pain in an upper Molar. When she came into the room I asked how much the exam would cost? It depends she said. I reached in my pocket and said "Give me 50 bucks worth". It was $105.00 for a 15 minute exam and 3 Xrays!!!!!! If it bothers me the tooth is coming out. After root canals, crown put on etc. they usually have to come out anyway. That's been my experience anyway.

Beans check into Durham college here in Oshawa.

 

I don't know about what your asking...but I do know a few people who go there for regular dental checkups/teeth cleaning etc. Good practice for the students.

 

Worth checking into.
