dad got new teeth in 2006, but these were lost immediately

I went to the dentist with my father this year (2009) to see about dentures again - the dentist at the nursing home. Turns out dentures won't fit because he has no bone left for them to "stick" to.  That's why he took them out all the time, and that's why they always got lost. 

That's a shame because it really limits his diet. One of his great pleasures in life was eating.

He had to get dentures after a fall some years ago - he knocked out some teeth.
