Anyone here have Dental implants?

I lost all my teeth through neglect and Bulimia.
Dentures are not the best.
When I enquired about getting a full set of implants, the cost was AU$50,000 - US$37,000
I mentioned this price to my Doctor and he said it was so the Dentist can buy his next Mercedes.
Australians are ripped of, all of the time.

I am afraid they are just as expensive everywhere. There is a lot that goes into the creation of a comfortable, well fitting set of implants.

Well not exactly true . Your doctor didn’t have to buy Tge $100,000.00 X-ray machine ( cone beam CT) , a $10K surgical box , and the extra training .

Actually there is no such thing as a full set of implants , but rather a implant supported denture . The palate is open . Now they install a custom made bar on the implants and the denture snaps on . All that crap is very expensive to fabricate .

@TexChik But just 10 patients would bring in $500,000.
50 patients - Two and a half million

@Gusman yep . Factor in the cost of the office, training , and materials . The Dr spent a good portion of his life paying for school to learn it . It costs what it costs unfortunately

I have some dental implants with crowns, and each one was quite expensive. It is unfortunate for sure, that most people can't afford the cost of "implanted dentures".
