i have had my immediate denture for a month and a half and i am considering getting the implants for my upper denture. My denture doesn't fit well and i am hoping getting the implants will solve the problem when i go for my permanent denture. If anyone has had the procedure done i would appreciate anyinformation you can give to me.

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. I know it's frustrating when you first receive dentures and they become loose. As your mouth heals and changes from your extractions, it's common for your immediate dentures to become loose.As a result, frequent adjustments are common. Please know that as the healing is complete, your permanent denture is likely to provide a much better fit.
Still,you may wish to speak with your dentist about implants. We've had some great discussions about implants on our message board in the past, and you might find the responses helpful. I've included direct links below for your convenience.

I guess my best answer won't be til next August. I have ten implants but not attached yet. Even my current upper is semi open and helps a lot with taste. I am so hopeful all spent will be worth it and the implants allow me to eat steak!

I won't be considering it for a while, I have a lot of healing to do, but I've researched Mexico. There is a border town near Yuma Arizona that has hundreds of dental specialists. Even the american dental association had some positive things to say about it. It isn't like it's way down in some obscure town, it's right on the border. They have all the dental labs to make the product in a day or two and it's 2/3 cheaper than in the states. There are some really reputable places from what I've seen. People have had great success with it. Dental tourism in Mexico is big right now. I'd consider it. There's a chance of failure with any implant - their failure rate isn't any higher than here. I'd research it to death obviously but I'm open to it. Cancun has a bunch too.

just remember that there is maintance with implants there will be replacement parts you will need to buy for the rest of your life,,, ask your dentist about this before you start,,,, most people never know this until they already have them.... there is also a denture that is just now on the market that has a horseshoe design and a u shape to it and no implants are needed to hold this denture in!!!!!!!!!!!! on the upper
