Your Mouth Can Suffer When Your Dentures Don't Fit Right

Posted on 1/23/2017 by Dr Wael Garine
A complete pair of dentures.
If you're missing your teeth, dentures, removable prosthetic teeth, are a great way to restore your ability to eat and speak properly as well as fill out your face.

Dentures are custom made from molds of your jaws, ensuring that fit perfectly, and allow them to do their job.

But if your dentures don't fit right, your mouth can really suffer.

What Causes Poor Fit?

Your dentures are made from molds of your mouth, which ensures that they fit properly. But, as time goes on, your jaw begins to reabsorb, due to the lack of tooth roots. These roots once stimulated your jaw, letting your body know to send nutrients to keep it strong. Without that stimulation, the nutrients are sent elsewhere, and your jaw weakens and changes shape. Eventually, your once perfectly fitting dentures will no longer fit.

Loose Dentures

When your dentures don't fit properly, they become loose. If your dentures are loose, you risk having them slip out of place, or even come out completely. This can result in some rather embarrassing situations if you're out with friends or family.

Loose dentures have a few other issues. They can click together when you speak, which can become rather irritating after a while. They can affect the way you speak, making it difficult for others to understand you. Loose dentures can also affect your ability to eat, which can result in malnutrition if not addressed right away.

Pain
Ill-fitting dentures can cause a significant amount of pain. Since the base of your dentures rest directly on your gums, they can rub against them. This can result in your gums becoming red and inflamed. You may even end up with denture sores. Your ability to eat and speak is once again affected, as anything you do with your mouth becomes painful. Having your dentures rub against your gums can also result in an infection.

Dentures are supposed to help make your life better. But when they don't fit right, your mouth can really suffer. If your dentures no longer fit the way they should, contact our office right away.
