Will they stop bone loss? I was young to get my dentures on top and bottom and trying to do what I can to preserve as much bone loss as possible so that I don’t age prematurely. I would love to know from dentists or dental assistants that know anything about this. I am 30 and getting my full upper and lower dentures tomorrow

    Wow, 30 years old and getting dentures. That is young. Your body determines that if the bone is not under a load (like chewing with teeth) you don’t need bone there. Your bone under the dentures will shrink for the rest of your life. Wherever there is an implant the bone is under a load, it is being worked. So, it will stay there.

    Bone loss is an unavoidable thing…it will happen with time and age. If you’re getting the implant supported dentures, though, you’ll be much more likely to keep your bone. Since the implant acts as the root of a tooth, and the bone and the root kind of keep each other where they are, I think it’d be a good idea for you to get those.
