Hello Doctor,

My friend is having some trouble with his teeth.
we've noticed that his gums have receded down far enough that his jaw bone is starting to show. Also he has a lot of tooth enamel decay. what would you recommend us to do? should he get dentures or is there another road he could take ? this is causing him a constant chronic pain. But he has way to high of a tolerance to take any type of pain medication. its to the point where no medication that is used to knock you out at the doctors is working. please help any way you can
its greatly appreciated.!

Has he thought of arranging an appointment with his dentist?

He should visit a dentist. He/she can help him identify the factors contributing to the problem and be treated accordingly. It sounds like he has a gum disease to me.
