My 92 year old FIL still had a full set of teeth until recently. Three of his front uppers have fallen out and the other one is just a stub. He had a cleaning and the dentist says it does not hurt him and wants to file down the stub. My FIL ls insistent that he get implants. I know he doesn't have enough bone density left for that, and feel it would cause more harm than good. He is also colonized with MRSA. The only option available would be a partial plate. However, I am told by others that have been through this that he not only will not take care of dentures, but he will more than likely not use them as they are uncomfortable. I'm also told they will be lost in a very short time. I don't want to put him through many hours of dental visits for no good reason. Plus he does not want dentures. He wants implants. He says dentures are for old people. He's been waiting for years for stem cell therapy to fix whatever ails him. Do you think it would be wrong to tell him that the dentist implanted stem cells and he just has to wait for the new teeth to grow in? He has dementia and fixates on one thing for a while. I'm thinking this way he'll be happy until he forgets about the teeth. At least this latest obsession made him forget about trying to get his license back. You folks always have such great ideas. I was wondering what you think?
