Dentures are a great choice for replacing missing teeth, whether you're missing all or only some of your teeth. However, some people are wary of dentures because they're worried about them falling out or moving around in their mouths. If you consider yourself to be one of those people, then read this guide to find out how you can get dentures and never worry about them moving or falling out.
Why It Happens with Regular Dentures
When dentures are made correctly and applied correctly, they shouldn't actually move around at all. Typically dentures only move if the adhesive used to attach them wasn't applied correctly, or if the dentures are put under an abnormally large force, like coming out during a car accident. So there's a good chance that if you got regular dentures right now that you wouldn't have this problem at all.
If you're still worried about it, there are ways to ensure that your dentures never slip around. One of those ways is with dental implants.
Dental implants can be used to secure dentures to your mouth. This makes the dentures permanent and ensures that they literally cannot move, just like an actual tooth can't.
What to Expect
Whether you get standard dentures or dentures mounted on implants, you can expect a few visits to the dentist's office to get the ball rolling.
The first appointment for both procedures will be to take a close look at your mouth and to take the necessary measurements to order a custom-fit set of dentures for you.
If you're getting an implant, you'll come back in for a second appointment to have your implants inserted. This is done under general anesthesia and ensures a painless experience. After that, you'll spend some time at home waiting for the implants to fully heal.
Your next appointment for both will procedures will be receiving your new dentures. If you don't get implants, your dentures will be fitted to ensure that they were made correctly, and then you'll be free to go.
With implants, your new dentures will be mounted onto your dental implants. If it all works as it should, you'll be able to start using your new chompers right away without any concerns of wiggling or moving around.
Dentures are an excellent option when you're missing teeth. Don't worry about them moving around. If that's a big enough concern for you, make the choice to get dentures with implants and make an appointment with your dentist.

Being born with naturally soft teeth, I've spent a lot of time in and out of the dentist's office. Not only have I learned a lot about basic dental care, I've also discovered many tips for dealing with broken teeth, extractions, implants, and more. I decided that I wanted to make the most of my experience by sharing what I've learned with others. True first-hand experience is a great teacher, and I knew that my story could help. I created this site to do just that, and I hope that the information here helps you to understand what to expect from your dental problems.
