What If My Dentures Are Loose?

Long-term denture wearers may face issues with loose-fitting dentures due to natural bone loss. In this video, Dr. Vahid Bashi illustrates how dental implants provide life-long retention to dental appliances.

Individuals who have worn dentures for many years often find that their dentures no longer fit as securely as they once did. This issue arises for several reasons, primarily due to the natural process of bone resorption as one ages. The jawbone tends to diminish in both width and height over time, resulting in less surface area for the denture to grip onto, which leads to a lack of tension and, consequently, loose dentures.

The solution to this problem extends beyond simply creating a new set of dentures, as the underlying issue is not the denture itself but the diminished bone mass available for support. In such cases, the most effective approach is to place dental implants that provide a stable anchorage for the dentures, ensuring they remain securely in place and significantly improving their functionality during eating.

For those experiencing loose dentures, a variety of solutions are available. The optimal way to explore these options is to schedule a visit for a complimentary consultation and scan. This allows for a thorough evaluation of your specific situation and the presentation of all available treatment options, enabling you to make a well-informed decision regarding your dental care.
