  DENTURES

Dentures are most commonly known as false teeth. They are prosthetic appliances constructed to replace the missing teeth and are supported by soft and hard tissue of the oral cavity.

Types

  • Removable partial dentures
  • Removable complete dentures
  • Implant retained dentures

Following is a list of possible causes for problems most often encountered by people who wear dentures. If you are suffering from any of these problems, or especially from a problem not listed here, call your dental professional.

General Denture Problem

Denture is not fitting right

Causes & Solution:
Due to changes in jaw bone and surrounding gum tissue, the gums and bone do not support the denture in speaking or chewing - Consult the dentist.

General Denture Problem

Unwanted sounds and speaking problems

Causes & Solution:
Denture is not in proper position or denture moves causing cheek and tongue to struggle to form words
- Consult the dentist.

General Denture Problem

Difficulty in chewing

Causes & Solution:
Some foods may never be 'easy to chew' with dentures, but lack of adequate chewing could be related to the alignment of your upper and lower dentures, this effects the "balance" of the denture on the tissues and muscles of the mouth. In combination with changes in tissue or poor alignment creates improper denture function
- Consult the dentist.

General Denture Problem

Sore spots in the mouth

Causes & Solution:
Pressure and / or rubbing is occurring in one specific area, usually a result of chewing but may also be due to clenching of teeth or grinding the teeth
- Consult the dentist.

General Denture Problem

Soreness in mouth

Causes & Solution:
Due to bone loss for the denture can cause the mouth to "over-close". This can change the way the lips seal together and cause saliva to pool at the corners of the mouth. The excess moisture in this area may cause the skin to become irritated and may increase the risk of a infection. The soreness may also be the result of a vitamin deficiency
- Consult the dentist.
