Considering Dental Implants To Replace Your Dentures? A Few Procedures That May Be Necessary First
The bone that holds your teeth in place (alveolar bone) requires the stimulation it receives as your teeth press into it as you chew to prevent it from shrinking. If you have been wearing dentures for a few years, the bone will have shrunk. Your cosmetic dentist may tell you that getting implants to replace your dentures is not a good idea because you do not have enough bone left to adequately hold the implants.
