My dentures won’t stay in, what are my options?
Dentures in Charlotte, NC are an excellent way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are designed to look and function like your natural teeth, and they stay in place through suction to your jaw. Partial dentures for partial tooth loss rely on clips for added stability.
Unfortunately, many people struggle with the fit of their denture and experience embarrassing situations like their denture slipping when they talk or worse yet, falling out when they eat. If you’ve had a denture for a while, it is possible that it may need to be relined – meaning it needs to have new acrylic added to it to fit your bone better.
Are there any other options for denture stabilization?
The good news is that dental implants can stabilize your denture and give you more security. Dentures can be implant-retained (still removable, but very stable) or implant-supported, fixed into place, and not removable. Tooth implants also provide the additional benefit of keeping your jawbone healthy and stimulated, so you enjoy longevity from your denture.
