It could be that your dentures don’t stay put very well. There is often not enough support which could cause your dentures to move around and chatter. A possible solution for loose dentures might be rebasing (filling up the dentures). If this does not help, overdentures might be the solution. Overdentures are attached by means of a click system. Multiple implants will be placed in your jaw. On the implants, It is possible to replace the studs by magnets. The advantage of magnets is that your dentures will be easier to remove. Therefore, magnets are especially advised for people with rheumatism or decreased muscular strength.
