Yes... Possibly: Gum disease is a complicated as it causes bone loss. If you have enough bone left, an "all-on-four" type permanent denture bridge can be used. Many times with this type of a procedure, we find that we need to perform a sinus lift and bone grafting. It would be best for you to see a dentist with experience in these procedures to determine if you are a candidate. A cat scan is a must to diagnose. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

You are obviously finding out, first hand, that traditional dentures 'suck' compared to the more modern solutions. And after you've gone through the healing process, you will find that, later, this entire ordeal was actually worth the discomfort right now. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
No: No. Gum disease is untreated bacterial infection that produces irritants that cause the gums to swell and cause bone to be lost, which leads to gum recession and loose teeth.

Hello i was diagnosed with severe gum disease.Will my teeth most likely fall out? Even if i get laser treatment done and scalping? If so how long?
Maybe: If you have severe gum disease, the likelihood of keeping your remaining teeth without extreme care and hygiene and combined complex treatment specialists is questionable. Realistically, you must commit to making this a primary daily priority. At your age you must consider saving bone, not necessarily teeth, to function into your 80's. See a prosthonontist for a full evaluation, consider implants. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
