Gum disease
I want implant supported dentures, but my dentist says because of gum disease I won't be able to have them and I don't want to go with temporary dentures as they are uncomfortable. Any recommendations about my situation? What should I do?

Opg is must for ur case.  But now sophisticated technology like cbct is available in that we can assist your bone better. And we can plan implant after controlling your gum disease and other health issues like diabetes.

Once the teeth are removed there is no existence of gum disease associated with teeth. The only reason that may prevent you from getting implants would be non-availability of bone which could be a result of severe gum disease. Though all this could be confirmed with a simple CBCT scan....
