Q: I have had upper dentures for years. Would I still be able to get implants even though my gums have receded?
A: Most people can have dental implants after wearing a denture. However, you would need special x-rays and scans to determine in which areas the implants can safely be placed. In addition, a thorough oral examination and review of your medical history would need to be done prior to treatment.
Many patients are able to discard their dentures after all the dental work is complete. The esthetic and patient comfort results are amazing.
