I’m a 48 year old woman with most of my back teeth missing. I also have gum disease and 2 caps at the front bottom of my mouth which I have had for 32 years. They are terribly off-colour and my gums have badly receded on these 2 teeth particularly. This is making it uncomfortable for me to eat! I was told by a friend that under 50 year olds can have fixed (screw in?) dentures on the NHS. Is this true and if so where would I be able to obtain this treatment? I obviously realise that I would have to have my remaining teeth removed but I am so unhappy with them that would be something I would be prepared to do. Thank you.
