Loose Dentures are Miserable!
Few things impact quality of life so quickly or dramatically as loose dentures. Not only do they limit the diet to soft foods which has a huge impact on overall health, but loose denture problems also make social gatherings awkward. They mess with your eating and even add sounds when you talk. Loose false teeth wiggle around and require funny lip movements to keep them in place. Forget enjoying a steak dinner because loose dentures are torture.

Bone Makes Things Loose
Dentures get loose because of bone loss. It must be remembered that without teeth or implants keeping bone in place, bone gradually dissolves away. As a result, this leaves hardly any bony ridge under the dentures to keep them in place. In fact, the less bone there is under the denture, the more it moves. Denture implants not only stop bone loss, but they also stabilize wiggling.
If you are sick of the wiggle and want to fix it with implants, you can get started today. Take the first step to a more stable denture, schedule your free consultation with Dr. Bec right now.

From Loose to “Hand me a steak!”
To begin with, loose denture problems can be fixed temporarily with relines, rebases or remakes. A reline gives it a new lining inside the base. Rebasing replaces the base with a new one. Remaking a denture provides a new base, lining and teeth. These solutions can tighten up the fit for anywhere from several months to several years, depending on which option you choose. However, since bone loss is the problem, stopping bone loss is the only long term solution. Read our blog to learn more about how dentures work.
Placing dental implants is the only treatment that stops bone loss. With implants in place, existing dentures can be converted into overdentures that snap onto implants. In some cases, the denture can also be replaced with a fixed, “all-on-4” bridge. To find out if adding implants is the right solution for you, come talk to Dr. Bec at a free consultation.
