I need to have all my teeth taken out due to gum disease

Q. I have recently found out I require all of my teeth to be taken out, due to gum disease. Would I be able to get implants in my full mouth after treatment has settled.

 

A. Implants are a definite possibility. How simple the treatment all depends on how much bone is available to place the implants. Following severe gum disease we often find that it is necessary, especially in the upper jaw, to bone graft an area to increase the amount of bone. This is an advanced procedure but their are many experienced dentists who place implants regularly who would be able to do this for you. You also need to decide whether you want fixed bridge work or a removable denture attached to your implants. Obviously this is jumping the gun but you need to be aware of the options.
