In sept 2017 I had oral surgery to remove a malignant tumor from the floor of my mouth. Along with that half of my tongue was removed as well as all of my teeth. A good portion of my chin bone was also removed. I then went thru 6 weeks of radiation/chemo therapy. I visited my dental surgeon this past week to ask about dentures. She said she did not want me to even consider dental implants or lower dentures and that I would have to live with only upper dentures. My question(s) is this: Is there anyone that lives day-to-day with only upper dentures. If so, what is your experience like? Should I seriously be condemned to living without the luxury of lower teeth forever?
