I have one lower natural tooth left and I do not expect it to last very much longer. The partial denture that fits around it is a miserable appliance. I do not expect that one remaining tooth to last very much longer.

This raises the question: just a full denture or one that is anchored by implanted posts? The information that I have seen is that in the latter case the denture would snap onto the posts, but be removable for cleaning, etc.

Anyone have advice or experiences?

I should mention that I am age 86.

A regular bottom denture will not fit well because there’s no suction to hold it. The snap in denture is much better. I know from personal experience.

This is what my periodontist says. It makes sense. A fastened denture would solve the problem gravity creates. Can you get one implant and have a denture fastened to it?

Note: I could never consider implants because of the cost. I have a friend that got them when they first became available in the late 80's or early 90's. She loves them!

A denture needs to be attached to 4 implants. It needs enough stability to stay anchored in your mouth.

Avoid implants in this age and only one dental implant is not going to solve your problem as more implants are needed. So the cost will go higher. Consider the cost and the surgical procedure.
