Implants have been a major breakthrough for denture wearers. Those people who have been unhappy with their removable prostheses may now be able to wear implant-supported dentures, or fixed bridgework. Many people believe that once they have dentures, they no longer need regular dental care. Denture wearers require regular exams to ensure their health, comfort and appearance. Gum tissues are in a constant state of change. Periodic relining of the dentures may be necessary to ensure a tight and comfortable fit.
