Can I Get Fixed Dentures on the NHS?

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.
Hello, thank you for your question. My apologies I do not practice on the NHS and am not familiar with what is on offer. Please see an NHS dentist for advice. Regards, Mark.

Lesley Wright Says :

I had to attend my dentist (private) on 06/03/2015 as I was suffering with pain right at the back of my left hand lower gums, behind a tooth. He suspected an abscess, so gave me a 5 day course of Amoxicillin 3 daily 500mg and I was then sent I for an X-Ray at local community Hosp, but couldn’t attend till Monday 09/03/2015 as the department is only open Mon-Friday and my further dental appointment isn’t until Friday 13/03/2015. But over the weekend I started to experience a numbness on the left hand side of my lower lip and my bottom teeth also feel numb. Also I can’t open my mouth properly so it’s making it difficult to eat. Is this normal with an abscess?? I’ve also been taking Ibuprofen for the pain as Paracetamol wasn’t strong enough.
