Dentures are a fantastic way to gain a brilliant beaming new smile however there are some common complaints from patients such as:
My dentures are loose
I can’t eat certain foods
I’m nervous about talking as they slip down
My gums get sore from the friction of my dentures against my gums
We understand this can be frustrating and we do have a few options for you.
Each tooth is replaced individually and is the most secure way of replacing missing teeth as they replace the root of the natural tooth which negates all of the common complaints listed above.
It is entirely possible that if you are having problems with loose dentures, that your dentures simply don’t fit anymore. We find that with missing teeth the gums tend to shrink, leaving excess space between the gums and dentures. Getting the denture relined will give them a tighter fit and feel much more secure.
