Fixing Your Common Denture Complaints

Posted on 10/20/2016 by Dr. Michael Drone

Are you living with dentures? If your appliance wasn't produced correctly, you might have noticed some problems with your dentures, their fit, and how they fit with your lifestyle.

If you notice any of these common denture complaints, it is important to schedule an appointment with your dentist in order to have them checked out. Often, changes to the fit of your appliance can make all the difference in how you feel about your dentures.

My Dentures Are Uncomfortable

Your dentures sit on your gums, but this structure of your mouth was never intended to support the force of chewing. For that reason, dentures that aren't properly balanced can lead to discomfort. Your dentist can help to balance the force of chewing on your gums by repairing your dentures.

I Can't Eat the Foods that I Like
If you are having a difficult time eating the foods that you enjoy, bring your dentures in to have them relined. A healthy bite and properly fitting dentures should allow you to eat any food that you desire.

It is Hard for Me to Talk
If your dentures weren't created properly or aren't secured in your mouth, talking can be difficult. They might slip regularly, or if they weren't designed with the right proportions they could be noisy in your mouth. Your dentist can help to make sure that your dentures have natural proportions, allowing you to speak freely.

My Bite Doesn't Feel Normal

If you had dentures created at a different facility that did not have a thorough understanding of how a bite should work, you may have had an appliance made with a malocclusion. A good prosthodontist will create dentures that offer a highly functional and healthy bite.

My Dentures Make Me Look Unattractive

If your dentures are too short, you may end up with some sagging in the lower part of your face. If you notice that your face is sunken in, alterations may need to be made with your appliance to give your face more support.
