Our most asked questions about dentures are:
How do I make dentures more comfortable?
One of the most common reasons for feeling discomfort with your denture is due to food becoming trapped underneath the denture and causing irritation.
If this irritation is left untreated, it can cause the gums to become inflamed and sore. You can get rid of the offending simply by removing and rinsing your denture. After a while your dentures should feel comfortable again.
Although your dentures are made to specifically fit your mouth, they may need to be adjusted over time due to changes which can occur in your mouth. In most cases these changes are perfectly natural and are normally due to aging.
Chris is able to adjust your denture using specialist tools in order to make it fit more comfortably in the mouth. Wearing your denture while visiting can help him to quickly define the problem.
Visiting a dental professional regularly will help reduce the chances of your denture becoming dislodged and uncomfortable over time as well as keeping an eye on your oral health, checking for any irregularities which are likely to cause problems and making sure your mouth and gums stay in a healthy condition.
How can I stop my dentures from moving?
If your gums shrink and you do not have your dentures relines or remade, your lower jaw may become out of line with the upper leading to the face muscles virtually collapsing which gives the appearance of premature ageing by causing old and wrinkled features.
Badly-fitting dentures can also cause:
* A dull pain in or about the ears
* A clicking or snapping noise when chewing
* Cracked or continually sore corners of the mouth
We can help with all of these issues. It may be that using implants to help to retain your denture and keep it secure is an option for you?
How do I know what option is right for me?
