Denture Implants Ask The Dentist Chris McFarland Question:
Denture implant locators: I got my clips installed on my implants 2 days ago.

Food gets under them if I try to eat and when I do eat, the sides of the denture flop up and down. The denture pinches the bottom and sides of my tongue.

Can this be fixed? ... Visitor from IA

Sorry to hear you are having some issues with your dentures.

You didn't mention how many implants you have but with any implant retained denture there are several different attachments that can be used.

Most likely you can return to your dentist and have him replace the snaps with ones that are tighter.

In my office I often put in snaps that only have a small amout of retention so that people can get used to snapping them in and out. After a couple of weeks, I often will replace those with some snaps that will hold the denture a bit tighter.

Don't hesitate to call your dentist, this should be an easy fix if everything was fabricated correctly.
