WILL MY NEW DENTURES BE SECURE?
Since dentures don’t have any natural teeth to attach to, upper dentures rely on primarily suction to stay in while the lower dentures stay in with a careful balance between the tongue and the facial muscles. Both upper and lower dentures require an adequate amount of remaining bone and tissue for stability. As most patients have the most difficulty chewing and speaking with lower dentures, two or more dental implants can make a world of difference. Dentures can be made to be retained or supported by dental implants. These types of dentures can be either removable by the patient or non-removable. The non-removable type can be removed only by the dentist.
