Solutions are possible for uncomfortable, loose-fitting dentures, says Dr. Robert Wolanski, from Nanaimo’s Lakeside Dental Clinic and the Vancouver Island Implant Centre.

Nanaimo centre offers smart solutions for loose dentures

Why wait? Restore your confidence – and your smile – today!

Did you know that if you have a complete denture your bone is shrinking? That’s why dentures are notorious for being loose and uncomfortable and this will only get worse as time goes by. This is especially true in the lower jaw where the denture has no suction.

It also leads to the most common complaints that people have about their dentures: “They move when I am talking,” and “I can no longer eat well anymore.”

Many suffer in silence and it leads to a loss in confidence, says Dr. Robert Wolanski, from Nanaimo’s Lakeside Dental Clinic and the Vancouver Island Implant Centre.

If you face difficulty in chewing food, gum discomfort, and lowered quality of life because of an unstable lower denture, maybe it is time to consider ALL OVER 4 Dentures.

What are ALL OVER 4 Dentures?

ALL OVER 4 Dentures is the dental implant procedure where Dr. Wolanski places four dental implants in the lower jaw with attached snaps that will hold your lower denture in place. This dental implant-retained denture is removable by the patient.

It’s also the most cost-effective dental implant placement method for those facing a loose lower denture.

Further, placing the implants will virtually stop the bone loss in the lower jaw as well.

“This procedure is by far my favourite for changing peoples lives. I have been doing it successfully for 26 years,” Dr. Wolanski says.

Sometimes it’s even possible to use your own lower denture and attach snaps in it, saving further costs.

Over the years, the dental implants’ design and the attachments have improved, making this procedure virtually 100 per cent successful.

“After having this procedure done, most of our patients wish that they have had it done sooner,” Dr. Wolanski says.

Start eating the foods again that you have not eaten for years, increase the amount of fibre in your diet and improve your overall health.
