  • Loss of bone density: When a tooth is missing, the jawbone often begins to lose its structure because it no longer has a tooth to provide pressure and stimulation. This can cause the dentures to feel loose or uncomfortable.
  • Misalignment: A missing tooth can cause the remaining teeth to shift out of place. Even with the dentures in for most of the day, the teeth can turn or shift slightly which will cause a partial denture to not fit correctly

These changes happen over time but can cause discomfort, gum irritation, or mouth sores. Some patients become frustrated and consider not wearing the dentures. This would continue to cause bone loss, misalignment, and additional oral health problems, However, with simple adjustments, the dentures can fit correctly.

Implant supported dentures

Patients who have experienced problems with full dentures – those that cover an entire upper or lower arch – may find they have a better experience with implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures provide better stability, increased comfort, and improved confidence.

    I've gone to at least 3 different dentists over the past few years, consistently had dental problems and had to get the same treatment done over and over again. Since I started going to Dr. Griffin, my dental problems are all solved for good. Here is a dentist with so much attention to detail and you can tell he truly loves what he does and sincerely cares about his patients. ~ Jenny
