Dental Implants under Existing Dentures
 

Sometimes patients are not sure whether to have dental implants placed prior to having a denture, but later decide the denture just won’t stay in place or they desire replacements that actually chew more like teeth (the best denture made only chews 25% as effective as natural teeth).   In this situation, implants can usually be fitted to the denture (as long as the denture is still functional and the bone is aligned with the denture base).
