Wearing damaged dentures isn’t just uncomfortable or unattractive; it can lead to irritation of the gums and the development of mouth sores. Your dentures might be in need of repair if:
- You notice cracks or other signs of physical damage.
- You are having difficulty chewing.
- You generally feel uncomfortable when you wear them.
We’ll examine your dentures carefully to determine what the problem is. If repairs are possible, we’ll have them done quickly so that you don’t have to go without a full set of teeth.
Over time, the shape of your gums and your jawbone may change. Even if your dentures haven’t been damaged, they may not fit as well as they used to due to natural changes in your mouth. By relining your dentures, we can adjust them so that they will rest comfortably on your gumline without causing irritation or sores. Some people may need to have their dentures relined every year or two, but it mostly depends on the state of the jaw.
If you’re suffering from chronically sore gums, a soft liner can be applied to your dentures in order to make them more comfortable. This involves placing a layer of a soft, pliable material between the denture and the oral tissues. It’s designed to absorb the shock when you use your dentures for biting and chewing, which makes eating gentler on receded and flattened gums that might not respond well to dentures otherwise.
