Denture implants

04/15/2009

Question:

I have a full set of dentures with 4 implants on top and two on the bottom. Out of the blue the bottom ones won`t snap in. I have worn these dentures for over a year and wake up one day with the bottom not snapping in. The two on the bottom are right in the front. Any advice?

Answer:

The clips or attachments in the dentures probably need to be replaced. This is not a procedure you can do, so please see your dentist.
