Failure on implant treatment depend on your sugar level. If Diabetes is monitored and controlled then successful treatment is possible.
I suggest you go for implant supported dentures. A minimum of two implants for each arch with a complete dentures both upper and lower arch. However if any of your teeth is firm don't extract .They can be used instead of an implant and you can make an over denture.
