Question:
I have a full upper plate and that is satisfactory. I hold it in place with a little adhesive.

I have only ten teeth on the bottom and my bone structure will not allow a conventional implant and a partial will just not work. ... Visitor from FL

Answer:
The problem you describe is extremely common and of course I can not see your x rays or you but in general implants will solve the problem.

You have to have enough bone to hold the implants and there is an important decision to be made. Would you like to have a lowr that does not come out of your mouth? This is usually possible.

The limitation is usually what the patient can afford. It also depends upon what you would like to accomplish. Your dentist will help you decide and give you lots of information. You can go to www.osseonews.com and there is a patient information section for you to look at.
