I'm 35 years old, and I've had upper denture work done about 2 years ago, but I'm seriously interested in a permanent fix.
My dentures constantly break and crack because I clench my teeth often. I really want implants, but I don't know if I can afford it. ... Visitor from GA
What I can tell you is that I have used many different methods to solve problems like yours, and at higher and lower costs.
When you have an upper denture against lower natural teeth, breakage is always a problem. Consider getting yourself into something that has a metal frame.
It can be retained in a number of different ways, from mini implants to conventional fixtures or even a light weight metal base inside a denture.
