Question:
Gum disease and implants: I am writing this on behalf of my mom. She has always been plagued with gum disease for years. She extracted all her upper teeth due to this problem, and now recently wears a full upper denture.

She is afraid to eat because she gags. She was always outgoing and because of the dentures she has stopped talking.

I need to give mom back her smile with implants, but the dentist adamantly told her that it is impossible because there is no bone in her gums. He told her that the only way she could get implants is if the dentist wants to take her money knowing that it will not work.

Mom was looking forward to implants, now she is severely depressed. She says her dentures looks like piano keys. What can be done to help her. ... Visitor from NY

Answer:
Not having the proper teeth is very difficult and affects all aspects of life. If implants are not an option then a new denture without a palate (the roof of the mouth) may be a solution.
