One of the greatest complaints about dentures that dentists receive is about how loose and unstable a recently fabricated lower denture is. There are many reasons for this. Unlike the upper denture, there is a tongue in the way, and so it is nearly impossible to get a good seal like an upper denture. In addition, the lower jaw bone and tissue tend to shrink more than the upper. This has been a problem for decades, but because we now have dental implant procedures available in Denver, there are many solutions.
You may be thinking there is no way I can afford an implant to replace every single one of my lower teeth. All on 4 is the solution to the expense problem you may have already faced. Your New Image Dental Implant Center prosthodontist and oral surgeon can now anchor a fixed non-removable lower denture with just 4 dental implants. It will prevent the usual mouth sores and often embarrassment you’d experience with traditional dentures. Contact the New Image Dental Implant Center to set up a consultation with your dentist to find the right solution for your situation.
