Stop Fighting with Slippery Dentures

For a long time, conventional dentures were the only option for replacing a full set of missing teeth. They are better than nothing, but on their own, they can never do what real teeth do. These dentures rest over your gums. If you bite into the wrong thing or try to say certain words, your teeth get pushed or pulled out of place.

If you’ve had dentures for a reasonable amount of time, you know how frustrating they can be. Chewing takes a lot more effort, which can make meals seem like a chore. You also figure out pretty quickly that there are certain foods you shouldn’t try to bite. Denture adhesives may help a little, but that’s a temporary solution at best. Besides, you don’t want everything you eat to taste like adhesive.

Full-mouth reconstruction with dental implants can address those concerns, but this may not be an option for you for many reasons. That’s when our reconstructive dentures may be a good alternative. These dentures are molded to your bite and positioned based on your muscles. This provides greater stability even if you lose bone mass. It also allows you to use little or no adhesive to hold your dentures in place.

Loose-fitting dentures can be frustrating. They give you only about 20 percent of the bite force of someone with all their teeth. Dentures that fit well and feel comfortable can make eating, speaking, singing, smiling, and more much easier.
