Q.

Given up on my teeth

I had a pacemaker fitter 12 years ago I am 39 years old. My teeth have crumbled and deteriated since my late twenties. Crowns fall out because the roots crumble and dentist have no solution for me. Implates no use, as I reject titanium, my first pacemaker rejected. I loose a tooth every 5 months and I feel my solution would be dentures, but find this depressing?

Hi Juliette,

Dentures are not as bad as they sound
Many, many patients lead a very comfortable and enjoyable lifestyle with them. the biggest hurdle to overcome is the mental aversion towards dentures.
A well constructed denture can make a huge positive impact in your case.
good luck
