Implant housings falling out: The metal housings in my wife's dentures have fallen out within a year of installation.
It is very expensive to replace. The implants they attach to seem to be fine. Could they be installed incorrectly or is this typical? ...Visitor from TX
Maybe I don't understand the situation, but the metal housings I associate with implant supported dentures should not be terribly expensive.
You might want to see another dentist for fees and to see how long he will guarantee the housings if he replaces them.
Sorry I don't have a better answer, but there are many systems of implant supported dentures and housings and I have no way to guess what your wife has.
