Do my complete denture patients need implants?

Interestingly, in the last 15 years I have not had a single patient require dental implants to stabilise a lower complete denture I have fitted. I am sure this will happen at some stage in the future, though. I believe the most important factor in delivering successful dentures is the patient’s education and understanding of their role – i.e. understanding the need for neuromuscular control through adaptation. Technical factors are extremely important but are not the most important factor in delivering successful dentures. I liken successful dentures to well-engineered lumps of plastic made within the patients’ adaptive capacities. They learn how to use them.
