I recently got some dentures. They look OK, but they move around. Did my dentist make them wrong? Is there anything I can do about that?

Even the most well-fitting dentures will move around. You’ll also lose about 50% of your chewing effeciency. I wouldn’t necessarily think the moving is because of a lack of skill on your dentist’s part.
That being said, there is something you can do about it. Ask your dentist about getting implant supported dentures. This places at least two dental implants into your jawbone to anchor the dentures. The more implants you get, the more stable the dentures, but you can do it with as few as two.
