Customer Question

I have had full upper denture for over 20 years and nine to ten natural teeth on the bottom-front. I know you cannot go straight to implants until bone is built up. How does these conditions affect time, cost, results? How much pain is involved? Only my wife, father, and dentist know I have a denture, and I am very, very, overly self conscious and am very sensitive to how people view. I am also a government employee am very concerned about my seniors and subordinates will view me. I want to improve my looks AND increase chewing surface.

I was asking if you still needed help on this as the question was posted a while ago.
