Full Dentures on Four Implants. Teeth Keep Coming out? (photo)

Loosening denture on implants
If I am understanding you correctly, the tooth on the denture itself has come loose requiring glue to reattach. If this is the case, it might be fault in the fabrication of the denture, its thickness, and how it relates to opposing tooth when you bite down. This should not occur if there is a proper balance, proper occlusion, and stable material and thickness. I recommend you to see a prosthodontist and assess the prosthesis and your occlusion (bite).
Teeth keep falling out of denture base
If teeth are breaking or falling out of your dentures a number of issue could cause that to happen. The bite may be off, the denture may not have been processed correctly, or the "glue" is not good. I would consult with you dentist to see what the problems is.
Denture over implants
If what I understand is that you have a full denture locking into 4 implants, on your upper arch, you are four implants short. Ideally you need 6-8 implant to support a full upper bite. from your photo the bite is too over closed and your front teeth have premature contact with your lower teeth. It should not be so. whenever teeth are popping off bite is one of the major issues.
