Posted by: demires  (8 years ago)
i'm 26 years old. i don't like my teeth at all. even if i brush good they have some problem and i have to take lots of pain to fix it and also my jaws need surgery and if i do the regular way (Orthodontics) to fit my teeth like most of other people then it take several years i prepare them for the jaw surgery i think. so i decided to pull out all of my teeth and do implant job which looks great and is very better than my own teeth.
well i have lots of money so thats not a problem i just want to know how this surgery may look like and is that possible i die ? (because i never did any surgery in my life and i really scare) and where is the best country or hospital to do it?

ps: i asked this question on yahoo answer and a doctore said "implants are lost resource for tooth replacement, with root canal treatment laser gum surgery and with crowns i can have my teeth saved without pain for lifelong"
well the idea looks very good but also fictional and i have no idea how gum treatment wanna save my tooth for lifetime like implant job...


this is very important for my life. please guide me i am thinking all the time about it

I would not be tempted to pull all ur teeth out and give u implants even for money. Nothing would replace ur own sound teeth, even implants. and like any form of surgeries, implants are successful but not predictable and there is always a risk of failure. Even though, implants r very popular, not every patient is a suitable candidate for implants.
Even after removing all ur teeth I would suspect that u'll have ur teeth straight away. u might have the implants put in place but it will need sometime for these to adhere to ur bone before crowns (teeth) r put on. which means u might have to stay for a while without teeth or have some dentures made (removable teeth ).
Full mouth implants doesn't mean u r not gonna get mouth disease any more, it just means u will not get decay but u r still at risk of gum disease. and if implants failed then u might be left with dentures at this very young age.
I understand that u might not like the way ur teeth looks but I would rather spend money for a right and logical way of treatment rather than pulling ur teeth out all at once just because u have money. Once these teeth are out, that's cannot be undone.
Money can buy u a (quick) pretty smile for the time being but cannot reverse time m afraid.
so I would encourage u to think million times before having this done and I really hope u chose wisely cz at the end of the day these r ur teeth and it is only u who will be affected by this.

I totally understand your situation, but what do you consider as long time? 2 - 3 years? yes it is a long time but the results will worth it at the end and time passes really quickly; I mean 26 years ago you were a baby born! Miracles of life!
Our time is not like your dad's time; today it's more about keeping as much natural teeth as you can till you are 80 or even more.
If you are taking all your teeth out and putting implants, you are not going to stop suffering, if you did not take care of those you are still at risk of getting infections and bone disease.
And if you promise to take care of the implants, then I can't see why not being able to take care of your own natural teeth and prevent disease so you won't have to suffer.
Studies have shown that many years ago people were losing their teeth at very young age because of oral hygiene issues, dental access and fluoride availability.
Since the introduction of fluoride, people are keeping their teeth for longer and people are becoming more aware and educated about disease prevention and are very good at cleaning their mouth and teeth to prevent what you've described as "suffering".
I have personally treated a patient in his 80’s with most of his teeth present!
