October 16, 2019

Dentures can offer an important solution if you have lost a tooth. You may recognize dentures more familiarly as ‘false teeth.’ However, the dental industry has progressed rapidly, and so dentures are nothing like your grandparents may have worn. They look natural and they are very comfortable too. However, if you do not take care of your dentures as your dentist has recommended, problems can happen. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the common denture problems in further depth so that you can get a better understanding of how to avoid such issues and what to do if you’re experiencing any denture issues.

How do you treat denture issues?

If you have any sort of issues with your dentures, it is important to see your dentist at the earliest opportunity. It could simply be that your dentures need to be adjusted and replaced. However, if you do not get this dealt with quickly, it could easily result in a bigger problem, which is why the best thing to do is simply find a dental hygienist to help.

Aside from seeing your dentist, there are a number of different things that you can do. As mentioned, it is so important to make sure that your dentures fit. Over time, your bones and gums are going to change, meaning your dentures may not fit any more. If this happens, it is so important to see your dentist to get your dentures modified, adjusted, or replaced.

In addition to this, you should also make sure you eat soft foods if you are having trouble eating. You should use both sides of your mouth at the same time when you chew so your dentures do not move forward. Also, chew your food slowly, don’t eat anything sticky, and take little bits of soft food, for example, yoghurts and egg. Aside from this, make sure you speak slowly. It can be frustrating but you are going to need to be patient with your dentures, especially when you first get them fitted.

So there you have it: some of the most common problems that people experience when it comes to dentures today. If you have noticed any of the issues that have been mentioned above, it is better to book an appointment with a dentist sooner rather than later. Plus, you may find that another solution, lie dental implants, is going to be better for you going forward, rather than relying on dentures.
