Can you stop my denture from moving?

dental implants | dentist greenwood wa Great-fitting dentures can be a challenge for patients of every age, but this can be especially problematic as patients get older and lose some of their bone structure.

Concerns with ill-fitting dentures

Dentures that move when you speak, eat, or laugh can be embarrassing and make eating difficult. You may find that your diet is limited to softer foods and some of your favorite foods – and the healthiest foods – are impossible for you to eat. Having a limited diet lowers your quality of life and puts your health at risk.

Dentures that move create sore spots. By stabilizing your denture, we can make eating and speaking more comfortable for you.

At Phinney Ridge Dental, we offer implant-retained dentures to hold your denture in place. By placing several dental implants, we can create a denture (or sometimes convert an existing denture), allowing it to lock into place.

Dental implants also have the added benefit of bone retention. Because dental implants and your bone naturally fuse together, they can reduce or eliminate bone loss due to tooth loss. Your bone provides facial structure and a foundation for your bite. Without teeth, dentures, or sufficient bone, your face may take on a sunken, aged appearance.
