I have had a problem with dentures slipping in the past. Have dentures improved in recent years?
If you have worn dentures for a while, you know some of the challenges that can arise with them. As you lose or gain weight, your dentures may fit differently and sometimes they shift for seemingly no reason.
When you’re out with friends, the last thing you want is to have an embarrassing dental mishap that ruins your lunch or outing.
Dentures have improved dramatically over the last few decades in both fit and appearance. Dr. Kyle Shank stays on the leading edge of his field by continually seeking ways to give our patients better care. We meticulously design dentures to fit when you need them most – while talking, chewing, and speaking.
If we believe that your dentures may pose a problem for you because of diminished bone, we also offer implant-retained dentures to lock them in place. Dr. Shank can use 4-6 strategically –placed dental implants to secure your denture. They will not move or shift until you release them for cleaning or maintenance.
This option provides many of our denture wearing patients with the added security they need to feel confident in day-to-day life.
If you have dentures that don’t fit well and live in Perry Township, give us a call and we will be happy to help find an option that works well for you.
