Dentures Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Receded Gum and Ridge: I have had dentures since I was 19 years old. I am now 48.

My gums have shrunk down to the point my dentures are out of room to ride up any higher or lower without cutting into my nose or my lower area where my inner lip meets the gum.

Are there any options to implant something to re-establish a ridge or something to support dentures, or am I destined to have no teeth in the very near future? ... Visitor from WA

Great questions but you need to see several live dentists with x-rays to follow up on this!

First you can do something called sub-periosteal implants.

Second you can have hip grafts or other grafts to reestablish bone height and quantity if you are a candidate.

You are not destined to be without teeth but you do have some research to do regarding your treatment options.

You will have a substantial financial outlay for these options which will have a definite bearing on your treatment, so start evalutating what you can afford to invest in your treatment and financing options so you can get started asap.

You may need to visits prosthodontists, makeover dentists or implant reconstructive dentists to get options.
