Bottom dentures or partials can be very difficult to use. If there is not much bone, maybe you can try seeing a periodontist to see if they can do extensive bone grafting/implants (to hold the denture), but that's not always successful. Or maybe reline or remake them if they are several years old. Lower ones tend to be tricky.
