I am recently diagnosed positive (3/08) and have severe periodontal problems. Given the number of teeth that are known that need to be extracted and the extensive and expensive treatment to save those that remain, is there any information pro/con going the complete denture route? I am a 56 y/o male w/ a partial lower plate already.
Many HIV+ patients undergo extensive dental repair/tootth removal/dentures if necessary and do well. I have had many patients go that route with satisfactory outcomes. KH
