Dentures don’t fit

I’ve had complete dentures for many years and as a result have severe bone loss and now cannot seem to wear them. I understand about facial collapse. What I’m wondering is if it will ever be possible for me to wear them again. Can they be adjusted somehow to work without the bone?

Unfortunately, once the bone is gone there is nothing you can do to the dentures to make them fit again. However, you can have bone grafting procedures done in order to build the bone back up. Once you have enough bone again, you can either be refitted for new dentures, or a better idea would be to get dental implants. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about losing your bone all over again.
