Would I able to replace what I consider dead teeth for dental implants?

Q. Hi, i have a couple of teeth on the top row of teeth that are technically dead as they are grey and don’t feel very secure. I haven’t been to the dentist in many years so i fear that the damaged teeth may have affected the gums and possibly the jaw. I would really like to get implants to replace the dead teeth but if what i fear is true would this be an option for me as the gum and jaw might not be able to provide a stable base. many thanks for your time,
A. Thanks for your question. The first step would be to have a consultation with a dentist to assess your oral health and identify what treatment options are availale for you. It may be possible to replace the teeth with dental implants but this does need the underlying gums to be healthy. Gum disease is a leading factor in tooth loss as it can start to affect the bone that secures the teeth. The great news is that this is treatable and you may need a series of appointments with a dental hygienist. Regards George Glover BDS MSc
