Lower Dentures: My lower dentures, even though being adjusted several times, now hurt when I eat at several locations.
My dentist says he can't adjust any more. If I have implants for the lower dentures to attach to will I have the same problem of pain when I eat? ...Visitor from NC
Implants on the lower arch will not only solve this problem, they will prevent further bone loss that can cause even more problems to your jaw and health.
As the jaw resorbs or melts away due to denture wear the bone loss gets closer to the nerve area that will cause severe pain. This link illustrates this very well.
I would highly recommend getting the implants when you are ready.
