My Denture Won't Stay in - Help!

There is nothing as embarrassing as a denture that slips or moves when you are trying to talk or eat! An ill-fitting denture impacts your confidence and your nutrition when you can't properly chew your food.

The good news is that your Garden City, GA dentist has some solutions for you.

Denture Relines

If you haven't had your denture checked by a dentist in a while, it may be time for a reline. It's essential to have an annual checkup with your dentist even if you've replaced all your teeth with dentures. This allows your dentist to ensure that your denture is functioning correctly and that your gums and soft tissues are healthy.

Your denture relies on support from your jawbone to stay in place, and your dentist needs to reline periodically to ensure a proper fit. This is because the loss of tooth roots and denture wear gradually causes your jawbone to deteriorate, which in turn affects the fit of your denture.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implants are also an excellent way to give denture-wearers more support and stability. Your dentist will strategically place a few implants in your jawbone that can support a denture and keep it from moving or slipping. Some implant-supported dentures in Garden City, GA are removable, some are designed to be removed only for dental cleanings. Either way, with dental implants, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your denture is secure and not going to slip during your next meal or conversation.
