New Technology To the Rescue
There are two main categories of options – those involving dental implants, and those which do not. Dental implants are the biggest advancement that dentistry has ever seen. We can now benefit from the same type of surgical materials used in hip implants and knee replacement surgery to replace missing teeth and “lock” dentures into place.

A dental implant is basically a man-made root which is placed precisely into the bone. Multiple implants support multiple crowns, or a denture which snaps into place on the implants. The denture is “locked in” and does not move. Patients with an implant denture (referred to as an “overdenture”) often say that they chew their food like they remember chewing years ago – when they had their own teeth!
For non-implant patients, refitting your current denture with new acrylic material can restore the fit to match the new shape of your mouth. Jawbones gradually shrink over time due to the pressure of the chewing forces being applied directly to the bone surface. Your dentures don’t shrink. When that denture no longer fits exactly to your jawbone, more bone destruction occurs – and at a faster rate! Some people are proud that they have worn the same set of teeth for 20-30 years, however we often discover much greater bone damage than what should have normally occurred. Dentures need bone to fit well. Even worse, by wearing an ill fitting denture you speed up the process. As the jawbone shrinks, a sunken facial appearance often makes people look older. There is an increase in deep age lines and wrinkles.
A new denture may be able to lengthen the face, eliminating some of these unwanted features – and without plastic surgery!
