I’ve worn dentures for years. Can I still get dental implants?

Posted 7 years ago

Generally – Yes.  People who have worn dentures for a while notice bone loss in their jaws (usually the denturist compensates for the bone loss by building the denture with more acrylic/plastic).  Despite this, most patients who seek out dental implant treatment still have sufficient bone and are suitable candidates for dental implant therapy.

Fortunately, techniques such as Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day© allow even patients with a minimal amount of remaining bone to take advantage of dental implants. Nearly all edentulous patients can be fitted with dental implants to replace their dentures.
