Say Goodbye to Slipping Dentures [INFOGRAPHIC]

One concern every patient has when they get dentures is how they fit. Poorly fitted dentures can slip, which causes embarrassment and painful gum friction. Likewise, to avoid denture slips, wearers often have to restrict their diets and avoid biting into crunchy foods like apples and corn on the cob. Now, patients have a solution: implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are attached via titanium screws implanted into the jaw during oral surgery so that they stay firmly in place. Thanks to the secure nature of these dentures, patients no longer have to worry about slips or avoid favorite foods to keep their dentures in place.
