Denture Problems – Even the Best Dentures May Require a Little Adjustment


If you were alive in the 1940s, you may have noticed that people lost their teeth and wore dental dentures at a much younger age than we do today. Before fluoride, flossing, and routine dental visits were commonplace, teeth were lost quickly due to poor oral hygiene and severe gum disease. Fewer people wear false teeth today, but there are still many who rely on affordable quality dentures to chew and speak properly. Nothing can truly replace natural teeth; even the best dentures can’t compare. Fortunately, in most cases, minor adjustments can solve common denture problems.

Dental Dentures: The Most Common Problems

Painful, ill-fitting dentures are the biggest problem facing denture wearers. Discomfort is usually the result of dentures sliding inside the mouth because they don’t fit snugly against the gums. Soreness and swelling soon result. Friction may cause painful calluses and sores to develop. Changes in the jaw and gums over time can alter the way dentures fit and feel. These occur slowly, so denture wearers may not notice anything until symptoms develop. No matter what is causing the bad fit, dentures that hurt can be improved by a dentist. The repair may be accomplished by relining the denture using an acrylic mold, recasting the denture, or inserting mini-implants into the jawbone to stabilize the denture.

How to Avoid Common Problems with Affordable Quality Dentures

Poorly fitting dentures and painful mouth sores are sometimes due to inadequate denture care. Even the best dentures require a little attention. These tips can help you keep your affordable quality dentures from becoming a costly problem:

  • First and foremost, clean and brush dentures every day using products designed especially for dentures.
  • Store your dentures in a safe location away from children and pets.
  • Always remove and soak dental dentures overnight.
  • See your dentist regularly for checkups. He or she can identify potential problems before they cause symptoms.
