Chinook Denture Clinic
For serviceable dentures with a metal frame that are seven years old or newer, we offer retrofit services that will improve chewing/mastication power, comfort, and their overall appearance. When natural teeth are replaced with dentures, there is a loss in chewing/mastication power. This loss is estimated to be in the 60-95% range, varying among people.
With the introduction of implants to full denture patients, there is no loss in chewing power. In fact, estimates suggest a probable increase in chewing power.
