Why Do Dentures Become Loose?
When you use dentures, they offer a temporary solution to tooth loss. You may find that over time your dentures are becoming loose. That is because of jawbone changes.
Your jaw requires pressure from your teeth to promote bone mass retention. When you have missing teeth, your jawbone goes without that necessary pressure, which can lead to jawbone degeneration.
The dentures you were fitted for a couple of years ago may become ill-fitting because your jawbone has changed. This would require you to go back in for a new set of dentures that you will wear until those too become loose again.

Possible Solutions for Loose-Fitting Dentures
We provide permanent solutions for loose dentures. You won’t have to worry about special glue, diet changes, or speech issues when you come to us for treatment.
The following treatments are the leading options for missing teeth and loose dentures. Please keep reading to see how we can help your smile look and feel its best.
Traditional dental implants can replace one, several, or a whole mouth full of missing teeth. They are held into place by a two-piece screw that is implanted into your jawbone. There is a healing period between when you have the implant placed and when your crown can be placed, and this is to ensure that the area heals and the implant is accepted.
The procedure is typically done under conscious sedation, and you won’t remember much if any of the procedure. While it does take several visits to get your final results, they are well worth the investment of your time.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are the leading solution to loose-fitting dentures. They require less bone mass to get the implants placed because they are much smaller than traditional dental implants. You can have your results on the same day and be able to eat whatever you want right after the procedure.
To determine whether you would be a good candidate for mini dental implants, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Buffalo dentist right away.

We believe that our patients with missing teeth deserve to live without worrying about loose-fitting dentures. We also recognize that mini dental implants are higher in cost.
