Question:
Dentures or implants? I have a bridge for my upper teeth. I have only 3 upper teeth left. I've been told I have bone loss.

I am 67 years old. Can I get dentures? My insurance will not cover implants and I don't have enough bone for implants. Will dentures work for me? ... Visitor from Lake City FL

Answer:
Since dental implants and common bone graft treatments aren't available for you, finding the "right" resource for you who can create a suitable prosthetic solution is essential.

Get a consult with a Prosthodontist who has 15-20 years experience. The skills, training and know-how of a prosthodontist far exceeds what a General or Denture Dentist can typically provide.

For some prosthodontists, your remaining three teeth can be "used as" implant devices.
