It sounds like you do have some teeth that need to be removed and replaced with a denture of some sort. Whether you can keep a few of your teeth or you need to remove them all needs to be decided by you and your dentist.
The difficulty of the extraction again depends on how much tooth you have in relationship to the bone. The more bone loss you have, generally, the easier it is to remove the tooth since there's less bone holding the tooth in place.
Your dentist would have to consult with your physician in regards to any medical management issues with your kidney problems.
