For denture wearers, the bottom denture tends to float, as there's not a lot of suction to hold the denture in place, making it a battle to keep it in. Most people are afraid to sneeze or even laugh because the denture might come loose. By using a dental implant, however, you can attach the denture to the implant so it snaps on is held on place by the implant, says Dr. Clay Hansen, a dentist in Moscow, Idaho. The denture attached to the implant looks just like regular teeth.
An alternative to having the dentures attached to implants, Dr. Hansen says people can have several implants with teeth attached to each implant that don't come out, which also look very nice and just like regular teeth.
