My dentures fell out

I’ve had dentures for many years. They’ve always moved a little, but lately they keep falling out. Even in public. What’s going on?

Violet H.- Ontario, Canada


If you’ve had them for many years, I suspect that you’ve lost too much of your jawbone structure. As a result, your dentures have nothing to keep them in. You are in a difficult situation. The only way to repair that is with bone grafting. After that you’ll have the choice of either  getting dentures again, or getting dental implants.

If you get dentures, you’ll end up having the same problem in ten to twenty years. If you get dental implants, then you’ll be protected from bone loss.
