Implant Denture Fit

Many Patients do not understand the concept of Dentures vs. a Permanent Bridge on 4 Implants. Denture [den′chər] Etymology: L, dens, tooth; An artificial tooth or a set of artificial teeth not permanently fixed or implanted. Removable over-dentures on an implant bar provide an improved fit when compared to traditional Dentures, however they are still Removable Dentures. A dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two or more implants, providing stronger support for your Removable Dentures. Your new teeth must be Removed for cleaning, and you may still require a palate and excess material on the Dentures to provide stability. Studies have indicated that this solution provides only 60-75% chewing ability, and a diminished ability to taste foods.

The All-on-4™ is the modern solution for all missing teeth. This treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a Full Dental Bridge, No Palate, No Excess Material, Not Removable, and supported by only Four Specialty Dental Implants, with two of the Implants placed at precise angles. With less implants needed, overall treatment time is reduced. The unique All-on-4 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Your teeth will look, feel and are brushed much like natural teeth, and you can lead a normal life immediately after a 1 Day surgery. Studies indicate that Patients receive 90-95% chewing ability. Your quality of life is improved and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again.

Implant Denture Fit

IF the denture is new then the impression taken was not accurate.  A new impression and attachments are needed.  If the denture is old and retrofitted you may need a new denture.  Also the implants may not have been placed in the correct locations or at the correct angulations which would prevent a denture from fitting on the abutments properly

Implant abutments don't fit?

Wrong attachments or wrong angle, from the photo I believe this can be repaired and made to fit start with new impressions and consider a new lower denture good luck

If you are happy with your current denture and the only issue is the fit, the denture can be relined to fit your current implants.  If you are not happy with the denture for other reasons, it should be remade
