So what is a “lock-down” denture? There are many alternatives to dentures. We find many patients tired and “sick of’ loose, sore, and hard-to-chew with dentures and partials. Imaging “locking these dentures down with “bolts to the bone!” That is what implants can do.
There are several options to dentures and partials. We can stabilize them with a couple of implants (implant retained dentures), lock the dentures to a bar above the gums with implant supported dentures, or you even throw the dentures completely away and bolt a entire set of teeth down with implant supported bridges.
See our website at LiveWithoutDentures.com, and our educational videos at YouTube LiveWithoutDentures.
