A Story of A Young Guy Who Lost His All Teeth at Age of 35

Posted on |Dental Care|, | 0

Hi, I can’t disclose my name, but I am living in India. I am 35 years old and married. I am healthy and physically fit, but I have suffered from a worse dental disease.

I lost all my teeth at age 35 because of aggressive periodontal disease. Losing full-mouth teeth in adulthood is horrible.

I had healthy teeth from childhood to adulthood. But there was some gap, and the front teeth were too outside. It is called ‘overjet’. Otherwise, the teeth were fine. I don’t eat acidic foods, drink, or smoke.

I lost my lower left jaw in college due to a cavity, but the jaw root was still in the jawbone. However, I clean my teeth daily but still have plaque in them.

The first time, a dentist cleaned my teeth (scaling) at the age of 23 because of plaque and tartar on the teeth.

Everything was going fine, but teeth bones get soreness and bleeding sometime in a a year. I noticed bleeding while brushing and bite on apples and other hard food

But I ignored it completely and didn’t visit a dentist for a checkup. I think it was my biggest mistake and the cause of losing teeth at a young age.

When I was 31 years old, my upper right jaw also had a cavity. I visited a dentist who cleaned all my teeth and removed cavities and plaque. They also treated gum bleeding problems. But they also said, “You have lost the half-tooth bone and need to do bone grafting (which was also clearly showing in my whole mouth OPG).” Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that is performed by a periodontist.

This dentist also warned me that if I don’t go for a bone graft and flap surgery, your teeth may start falling in the next 4 to 5 years.

But I refused it because I thought that I didn’t need it and that this problem would not increase in the future. I also found this treatment expensive, but not more expensive than dental implants. That was my biggest mistake in my life – first, ignoring gum disease and refusing bone graft and flap surgery.

As the dentist told me, after four years, my teeth would start falling, and I lost one upper jaw because of the receding gum or bone.

During these three years, the bone-receiving problem has increased. Teeth roots started showing clearly. Many teeth were shaking and moving. I could not eat with these teeth. 

According to dentistry, ‘now I had grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 mobile’ teeth in my mouth. I started visiting dentists again. But all the dentists have refused to do bone grafting now after investigating current CBCT and OPT scans.

They suggested that dental implants were the best option for you. They explained the treatment and said to remove all teeth, including the ones that were healthy and had no mobility. This is because most dental implants are placed where there is a healthy bone.

I consulted with multiple dentists because I was in shock and I didn’t want to extract the healthy teeth as well. I also had a dental implant cost concern.

In the last, I visited a dentist’s hospital, which is very famous and ranks second in our country. They investigate all things and history. They also suggested removing all the teeth and then getting a dental implant. But they said this treatment will take 1 year and cost around 2.5 to 3 lakhs.

Full-mouth dental implant at a young age

I had a tough time deciding without wasting more time. So I made up my mind, prayed to God, and got my treatment started.

Their oral surgery team took two months to extract the teeth. After this, they said to wait 3 months for healing. But they provided me with a denture, which I wear when I have to go outside.

Five months have gone by, and the dental implantologist has planned to do a dental implant. First, they place six noble biacare implants in the upper maxilla and, after 2 weeks, in the lower mandible. 

Again, I waited for 3 months, and after that, they started the tooth fabrication work, which also took 4 months.

I got a final dental implant and teeth in a year plus one month. It has been 3 months since I got my dental implants when I’m writing this post. Everything is going well, despite a mild sensation sometimes.

Problem I Faced During Dental Implant

Eating and speaking

I faced difficulty chewing and eating with moving teeth and without teeth. I don’t want to speak with anyone because I feel low.


I get fully depressed and stressed about my life. I don’t want to live, and I feel very low about myself. I was fighting with myself every single day until I got a full-mouth implant and teeth.


People used to make fun of me by saying that you had become old at a very young age. I didn’t like to talk to friends, relatives, or other people. I feel afraid while talking to people and even getting out of the house, and I don’t want people to talk with me.


I belong to a middle-class family that can’t afford expensive dental implant costs, but we still manage the dental implant treatment fees.

Toothless at Thirty-Five

These thoughts were eating me up inside. Who loses his teeth at the age of 35? How will I survive for the rest of my life? 

In the last,

I lost my teeth in my 35s because of gum disease (aggressive periodontal); otherwise, 30 teeth were fine from the outside. There was a problem with my gum due to plaque, improper cleaning, and heredity. If your teeth have plaque, bleeding gum, swelling, and pain, don’t ignore it. Go for a dental check and fix it promptly. Otherwise, there is mental, physical, and social suffering without teeth.
