Answer: I do not know the difference in Image vs. Acrylic. BUT, I was told by two different dental clinics that the Image dentures are the better of the two.
Also, at a dental clinic in North Carolina the price is $270.00 more for the Acrylic full set ($885 vs. $615) . In South Carolina, the price is only $100.00 more for the Acrylic full set ($495 vs. $395).
So, a logical answer to the "...are they worth the money" question is, it depend on the amount of the difference! More input Image is a brand name of the high end acrylic teeth from Lincoln Dental. Generally high end acrylic teeth last longer than economy teeth. You may want to check out the companies claims of longevity.A high end denture made with quality materials and processed with conventional techniques is prefered over economy teeth with a quick cure processed denture.An example of high end acrylic teeth would be the already mentioned Image teeth by Lincoln Dental, Physoden by Vita, portrait by Dentsply, Ivoclar Blue Line by Williams Ivoclar. Processing techniques would be either an Injected Denture or a Packed Denture processed in conventional water bath for 9 hours at 73c. Or the alternative process of 90 minutes at 73c with a 30 minute boil. Anything less usually dramatically decreases the quality of the finished denture. There are faster techniques for processing a finished denture but the quality of the finished product will go down exponentially with the speed of the processing.

Answer: You need to give your wisdom teeth sockets time to heal. This means that you should avoid irritating the area. The healing process begins with a blood clot. If you spit, smoke a cigarette, drink from a straw, you can cause a pressure that removes the clot from the socket. The is called dry socket and needs to be treated by the dentist, it is also associated with significant discomfort. To answer your question you can brush your teeth but avoid the areas that were involved with the surgery for at a few days. Your surgeon should give you a specific time frame that is associated with the type of procedure that was done.
Answer: It primarily depends on your anatomy and your occlusion (bite). If you want a couple of implants to stabilize a complete denture, that is an entire different scenario than if you want to replace all or most of your missing teeth with implants. There is not a simple answer, and would need to be evaluated thoroughly by a dentist who has experience doing implants, or a prosthodontist.
