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?

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.
