Q.

grinding teeth

My dentist said I have ground my top front teeth down badly and at some stage in the next couple of years I will need a procedure done that will cost about R300000 to have implants done. I have had a plate made but can' t get used to sleeping with it, are there other alternatives to the plate and do these procedures really cost this much

yes, the costs are extensive
