Q.

immediate dentures

I plan on extracting all my teeth, but because I work in an office I would wish to have immediate dentures fitted. I live in George and do not know where to find dental practices who can help me. I have enquired from a few and they do not even know what it is. Could you also tell me how much it would cost, seeing as I do not have medical aid.

The dentists did not know what immediate dentures are?? That is VERY strange as the procedure is very common. costs are in the region of R2 000.

ask your dentist to read:

All dentists in South Africa are trained in this procedure.
