68 Years Old with Lots of Bone Loss
This question cannot be answered on the internet without seeing photos, X-rays, as well as a physical exam. If you have severe bone loss, then your only option is extractions and either a complete denture or else an implant supported denture.
Dentures Retained with Mini Dental Implants
Mini Dental Implants are a great option for people with bone loss as your case. They are immediate load, and you can get Dentures with O-rings which works as a "housing" and these o-rings sit over the mini dental implants.
They are a great option and you can speak and laugh freely as well as eat anything you want. All the procedure is performed in just one week.
