When your dentures do not fit well, you may experience denture sores, slipping dentures, and even dentures that fall out. It always seems like that happens at the worst times!

Refitting Your Dentures

No denture will fit perfectly forever. We can reline dentures occasionally to improve the fit and comfort, but when that fails, it’s time for a new denture. Many patients find that simply replacing their dentures after 5-7 years is the best solution for them. That way, you can still eat the foods you love and avoid the painful consequences of ill-fitting dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

If you have significant challenges with the fit of your dentures, we can place 4-6 dental implants to firmly secure your denture in place. This will lock it in and only release your denture when it’s time to clean them or for maintenance.
