Dentures for Cerebral Palsy
I`m 55,have cerebral palsy and severe worn teeth.could you give opinion on the most stable prosthesis.tooth root anchor supported over-denture?mini implant denture? implant bar splintered denture?implant supported bridge?Do they make a small less bulky denture that would be stable and fit my mouth?thank you for your time and consideration.
Clearly the implant-supported bridge would be your best and most stable option. However, it would also be more expensive but likely worth it over time given your situation. Any of the options should be customized to fit your mouth.
