What can keep my dentures from slipping

I can’t afford dental implants, so I’m stuck wtih dentures.  I know there is nothing I can do about that, but wondered if there is any way to keep them from slipping.? Please tell me there is.

Donna,

I’m sorry. There is nothing worse than knowing there is a better treatment out there, but you can’t afford it. Fortunately, there is a way to make living with dentures a little easier. That includes keeping them from slipping.

Has your dentist mentioned snap on dentures to you?  It essentially is anchoring your dentures to your jawbone. That will keep you from having complete loss of your jaw bone.

Another thing I’d like to bring up. If you truly desire dental implants, there is a way to do them in stages.  You can get two implants at a time, giving you time to save up for each set. This will further secure your appliance, eventually giving you the comfortable tooth replacements you’ve been wanting.
