Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Implants for small mouth - gums: I have a very small mouth with narrow thin gums. I also have some bone loss.

I only have six teeth in front bottom and would like to know if getting implants done is possible. I really don't want to go with dentures! The six teeth I do have are not decayed or loose but I was told they are not very healthy and have short roots.

One of my options was a full bottom denture. I don't want to go that route.

If I can have a bone graft done with implants that would be great. Eventually I probably will have to replace the six in front with implants also. ...Visitor from MN

Answer:
This is a question to ask your dentist or go to an implant specialist.

I don't have x-rays and haven't done an exam. Keeping teeth is usually a priority as it helps retain bone, even in situations with short roots, the lack of mobility may mean it is wiser to keep them for now.

If from a financial perspective they have to be sacrificed to pave the way for a full arch overdenture or fixed implant bridge then the information to come to that conclusion will be presented by a specialist. Best of luck
