After gum disease and a denture can you have teeth replaced as implants?

After gum disease and a denture can you have teeth replaced as implants?

Yes, predictably: You can expect implants to help support a denture (removable), hybrid (fixed) or bridge (fixed). With dentures specifically, one of the main cost variables surgically is "number of implants" (2 or preferably 4) and prosthetically is "type of attachment" (bar vs. Single attachments). Ask your dentist for more info..... Hope this helps! ...Read more

After gum disease and a denture, can you have two teeth replaced as implants?

After gum disease and a denture, can you have two teeth replaced as implants?

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 more

Temp denture after lower extractions/implants last week. In misery with temp. Very painful on gums & cannot eat. Have very dry mouth with sjogrens. See prostho again soon. Suggestions 4 surviving this?

On the right path..: Your temporary denture should completely convince you that implants (with dentures or retained hybrids) are the best solution to your needs. 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 more

Could brushing your teeth too much cause gum disease?

Overbrushing can lead to gingival (gum) recession if too much force is used, as in heavy scrubbing motion or using a hard or firm bristle toothbrush. ...Read more

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?

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 more
