Avoid Embarrassing Denture Mishaps
Have you ever been chewing food with a friend at lunch and had your denture accidentally slip, causing an embarrassing moment? You are not alone! As you age, your bone structure can change, especially if you are missing teeth. When you lose teeth, your bone could begin to deteriorate, making it even more difficult for your dentures to fit properly. In fact, even if your dentures are in good condition, your changing bone structure can cause them to become loose and may create sores or embarrassing moments because they fall out or move around. For most people this feeling is humiliating.
When your dentures are loose, they can create serious sores in your mouth that are difficult to heal. Long term use of pastes and gels is not an ideal solution for keeping your teeth where they belong and relines for your dentures are often just a temporary solution to a bigger problem.
