Many patients will come to a day when they need to make a decision about how to completely restore their natural teeth. Dentures are a great restoration tool, but they have some problems as well. Even with those problems, dentures tend to be a popular choice. Patients love the ease of caring for their dentures as well as the confidence they feel when smiling with their new mouth! In many cases, dentures look better than their natural teeth! So what happens when those dentures start to become uncomfortable?
Now that the patient is wearing dentures full-time, he (or she) might start noticing some discomfort from their dentures. Dentures tend to slip and slide around the mouth leading to painful, sore gums and possibly an embarrassing “lost my teeth” moment! The culprit isn’t the dentures themselves, but the fact that your jawbone changes shape once your natural teeth have all been removed. Over time, your dentures will stop fitting correctly, and you’ll need some form of dental help to get your dentures to a place of comfort again. That’s where we step in.
