Having no or several missing teeth presents multiple challenges. Appearing in public without any teeth can have social and professional consequences. Loss of teeth also creates functional deficits related to both chewing food and speech.
Complete dentures are appropriate for patients without any natural teeth, while partial dentures may be used instead when there are some healthy natural teeth remaining for support.
Dentures are a removable prosthetic device. To a certain extent, all dentures move during function to varying degrees. Most patients are able to adapt and tolerate this arrangement quite well, but some patients require more retention (“staying-put” power). The answer often is to use dental implants in conjunction with the denture. With implants, dentures become virtually rock-solid in the mouth.
Do you already have a denture that just won’t stay put?
