Hello. My dad had all his upper teeth extracted a few months ago and is now in the process of getting implants. So far he has had 5 put in and is waiting for one more which will be put in on Nov 17. I am feeling very nervous because he has been losing a lot of weight. When he first had all his teeth removed they gave him temporary dentures and he started getting used to eating with them, but once they started adding the implants his periodontist said he needs to keep the dentures out all the time so the implant sites can heal properly. When he had the dentures there was only so much he could eat but now he has even less options. I just wanted to know if this was normal during this process? He has been drinking protein shakes as well to try and keep his weight up, although he hates them because they taste mediciney. Once he gets all his implants and the crowns are added, will he be able to eat normally again? I appreciate all your feedback. Thank you.
