Yes! There is no way to predict how much an individual's jaw bone will erode after the teeth are extracted. In more than one instance in my 30 years of practice, I have seen individuals with such narrow, small lower ridges on their jaw bone or flattened uppers, that NO denture would be able to create suction, function or be comfortable! There are procedures to help place implants. Consider ur options!
Yes. Yes you can. This is a good reason to consider dental implants before you lose bone because dental implants maintain bone in the areas they are placed.
Yes, it is possible. Approximately 40% of your jawbone structure will be gone after wearing your dentures for just six months.

Call your dentist for more information.

Good luck!

Yes. Yes it is possible, but i would recommend that you see a prosthodontist as they have special advanced training and may still be able to fabricate one for you, while some general dentists may not want to attempt it. You may also be a candidate for dental implants. See a prosthodontist and discuss your options.
