The nice thing about dentures is that they allow for a complete transformation of the bite and smile. If you have severe rampant decay and several missing teeth this may be a great option to quickly get back function and beauty.
Traditional complete dentures are held in with suction. If your mouth is routinely dry or if you have been missing teeth for quite some time you may have a problem with sore spots and lack of retention.
Implant supported/retained dentures are a great option. Implants add stability, chewing power and help maintain bone levels. It is highly recommended that at least two implants are placed under any lower denture.
