Dentures Southern California please help!
I've been trying so hard to find a dentist who can make a set of dentures without putting so much fear in me by telling me I'll be "MISERABLE" if I don't get implant supported dentures at the whopping cost of $30k....$50k....$80k etc. Especially with the lowers they say.
If y'all haven't heard of Dr Jiro Abe from Japan, he has a lower suction denture technique most everyone is a candidate for. Look in YouTube for the video "what is suction denture?" To see for yourself.
Here's the video link
They make these in Canada for the same cost as here in the USA for a regular good quality denture set that DON'T NEED IMPLANTS to stay in securely without adhesives. But why would anyone here want this if they can push you into financing the equivalent of 2 nice cars? Plus implants can & have had horrible problems. Only thing is...Canada isn't just a short drive away. A follow up appt means returning to Canada & now with this pandemic debacle .... Ugh! So what to do? Canada has these denture centers EVERYWHERE.
Does anyone know of a great prosthodontist or dentist near orange county ca or southern California that has had a GREAT denture experience with? Somewhat Affordable too? There's only 1 who says he can do this Jiro Abe suction technique in mira mesa (San Diego) but his wife was like a gate guard dog & they really overcharge JUST for a consult appt. If they were SO confident about their work, they wouldn't overcharge so much. They almost have you feeling it's better to go to Canada. They'd gain more patients if they charged a nominal fee for the consult really. I'd have already gone there if this was the case. I'm considering surrendering & going to aspen dental in the desert... palm springs area. Can someone give me good recommendations please? I'd be so grateful.
