In brief: See a specialist

See a prosthodontist and their team oral surgeon.
Newer techniques are available. Go to www.Dentalimplants-usa.Com for more info. There is hope -- especially at your young age.

In brief: Depends

We need to know why you have the bone loss and why you can not wear dentures.
Is the bone loss general or localized? Why does you dentist says you can't wear the dentures. Your dentist needs to help you with the answers to your question. If it is general bone loss that suggests osteoporosis and there are treatments for that. Once that is clarified with a dxa (bone density) test then rx.

This is not an orthopaedic problem but a dental problem. It could be caused by taking some bone preserving drugs as fosimax.
Talk to you dentist.
