Yes the dentures can definitely be given and should be given to enable the patient to chew his food properly to reach the best state of health..... diabetic patients need to maintain their oral health and the cleanliness of the dentures more meticulously...... even implant supported dentures can be given provided the patient can maintain the blood sugar to a clinically desirable level..... regards.....

He should go for dentures. Properly chewed and digested food helps in controlling sugar too.
