I will not be able to be fitted for dentures due to the excessive bone loss

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009
Q.
I am 48 years old, and have been progressively losing my bottom teeth. I have been examined by a total of six dentist, who claim that it is a combination of genetics and environment. According to these dentist, I will not be able to be fitted for dentures due to the excessive bone loss. Dentures are the only affordable option for me, as I do not have any health insurance at the moment. I am presently a college student, and soon will need to go out for an internship position, but I will not be able to due to my oral situation.

Hello, i am 43 and have a lot of bone loss and my teeth are very loose

Monday, March 30th, 2009
Q.
Hello, i am 43 and have a lot of bone loss. My dentist reffered me to Guy’s hospital some time ago, but i found it hard to keep up the treatment as i am on my own with two small children and the logistics of getting to and from the hospital where very difficult. often i would turn up and my appointment had not been recorded and i was unable to see a consultant. My teeth are now very loose and i have lost two molars and two pre molars at the top of my jaw and one molar and one pre molar at the bottom. my two remaining molars at the top are extremely painful and loose and i am finding it hard to eat. I am very worried about my front teeth as they are now loose. My hygenist was afraid to carry out any work on them. I would really like some advice as what to do next as i really cannot afford to pay for private treatment. I have been told i will require a bone graft. i am very worried and in a lot of pain. I looked into going abroad for the treatment and my dentist suggested that is what she would do, however, i am now in a worse financial position than i was when we first discussed this. please please if you could offer any suggestions i would really appreciate it. thank you

Are dentures my only option? Is it possible to utilize implants of any sort when bone loss and gum recession is a problem?

Monday, March 30th, 2009
Q.
Hi I am 53 and following a course of peridontal treatment, I’ve been advised that I have suffered considerable bone loss and loss of gum tissue through gum disease which has gradually worsened. The worst area where the gum recession is most noticable is around my top front 4 teeth, which are crowned. The recession has increased dramatically since the full mouth disinfection treatment (scaling & root planing with periochips). I’ve been advised that the bone loss I’ve suffered means that it would not be possible to resolve the problem with dental implants. Furthermore, it would also be difficult to get a successful outcome via either replacement crowns – or bone regeneration techniques. Fortunately, the problem is not evident when I am generally speaking. Unfortunately, I have a ‘gummy smile’, so the problem is immediately evident when I laugh. This is now making me very self-conscious, so I tend to smile when my mouth closed. Not easy for someone who relishes a good sense of humour….!! So my questions are: Do I need to be considering the ‘D’ word already? Are dentures my only option? Is it possible to utilize implants of any sort when bone loss and gum recession is a problem? Can you offer any advice as to my best way forward? Thanks in advance!

I do have considerable bone losss. I would like to get my teeth veneered for that perfect smile.

Monday, March 30th, 2009
Q.
I am a 28 year old male who’s teeth appear quite good and straight. I have a history of gum disese in my family and althought I have all my teeth (ex wisdom teeth) I do have considerable bone losss, esp at the back. I regularly visit a periodontist for deep below the gumline cleaning. I would like to get my teeth veneered for that perfect smile. I have only 1 non-porcelin filling. Am I a candidate for this procedure?
