Lower complete dentures and dental implants. Some patients are never able to adapt to functioning day-to-day with their complete dentures. Many of these patients do not have adequate bone to stabilize a lower denture. Others never develop enough muscle coordination to learn to chew with their dentures. For many years, dentistry had nothing more to offer these patients other than a denture adhesive. Today, such problems can often be managed through the use of implant dentistry. Even with as few as two dental implants, the retention and stability of a lower denture can be greatly increased with dental implants. In fact, the chewing efficiency can also be greatly increased. Patients regain up to 75% of their original chewing capacity. Overall, patients feel more confident when they are in public because no longer do they fear that their dentures will slip or cause them embarrassment with their denture.
