Doctor Bill Ligon on dentures
If you’ve gotten to a point where your teeth are just not restorable through bone loss, periodontal disease, decay, whatever, and you have to go through the process of having all your teeth taken out, more affordable than implants, you could just have conventional dentures made. Upper dentures, patients do really well on. Most people don’t have one arch or the other. Usually it’s a full set, but usually dentures are a good fix for most people. If they have adequate ridge support, bone support on top and bottom, we can usually achieve a pretty good outcome for people, and it’s a much less expensive proposition than, say, doing implants.
