A Look at Common Problems with Affordable Quality Dentures

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

People living in the 1940s rarely saw a dentist. It was considered normal to lose all of your teeth and wear dental dentures at a young age. Fluoride, dental floss, and advanced dentistry have reduced the number of people wearing false teeth today, but affordable quality dentures are still an ideal solution for the ones who do. Unfortunately, even the best dentures can occasionally cause problems. Here are the most common annoyances denture wearers must battle.

Typical Problems with Dental Dentures

Painful, ill-fitting dentures are probably the number one problem facing denture wearers. Discomfort is usually due to dentures sliding around inside the mouth because they don’t fit snugly against the gums. Soreness and swelling soon follow. Friction may cause painful calluses and sores to develop. The way dentures fit can be altered by gradual changes in the jaw and gum tissues. These occur slowly, so denture wearers may not notice anything until symptoms develop. Regardless of the cause, dental dentures that don’t fit well 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 the Most Common Denture Problems

In some cases, problems with denture fit and function can be related to improper care. Even the best dentures require a little attention. The tips listed below can prevent affordable quality dentures from needing costly repairs:

  • Always remove and soak dentures overnight.
  • Store your dentures in a safe location out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for checkups. He or she may be able to detect problems before they cause symptoms that you would recognize.
  • Clean and brush dentures daily using only products designed specifically for dentures. Regular toothpaste contains abrasives that can scratch the delicate surface.
