Loose or ill-fitting dentures can make it difficult to speak or chew properly. If you have loose dentures, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Jung so he can make the necessary adjustments or repairs.
Why Are My Dentures Loose?
Dentures can become loose for different reasons, such as bone resorption, damage, and everyday wear and tear.
- Bone resorption occurs when the gums shrink because they no longer hold teeth. When the gums shrink, it can make once well-fitting dentures feel loose and uncomfortable.
- Damage to a denture may also result in a loose or uncomfortable fit. For example, if a denture dries out, cracks, or warps, it can cause pain and discomfort.
- Everyday wear and tear can also alter the shape and strength of dentures. The better you care for your dentures, the longer they are likely to last and fit comfortably. To prevent damage, we recommend removing dentures before bedtime, storing them in water or denture solution, and avoid chewing or biting hard food.
Wearing well-fitting dentures can improve one’s oral health and ability to eat, speak, and smile. They can also reduce the risk of bumps, pinches, and irritation to soft oral tissues.
Dr. Jung can quickly and effectively improve your dentures' fit so you can enjoy your smile to its fullest potential.
