Signs That Your Dentures May Need Replacing

When it comes to having dentures, they are a great way of replacing teeth. Many people choose dentures when it comes to tooth replacement. However, no tooth replacement option will last forever, and special attention needs to be taken to ensure all aspects are well taken care of, and when needed a replacement for dentures can be done.

Signs dentures may need to be replaced

It is essential to keep these in mind when inspecting your dentures each time you remove them and place them in denture solution at night. As well as when wearing them each day and aspects that may become bothersome or an issue.

Wobbly or loose dentures

One thing that can indicate that dentures need to be replaced that is typically noticed first is a change in the fit of the dentures when someone is wearing them. When dentures are first placed in the mouth people will usually see how snug they fit and feel. As time goes on, the wearer may notice that the dentures have become loose feeling and could be a sign they need to be replaced.

Suddenly feeling pain or discomfort when wearing the dentures

Dentures do a lot more for the wearer than just replacing the teeth that used to be in their mouth. It also helps in keeping the jaw aligned and not having stress-related issues pop up such as TMD.

It is important to remember that the bone that is underneath the gums does change over time. Due to these changes, the bite can become altered, and this can lead to different signs and issues popping up over time.

Broken dentures

If dentures become broken, it is essential that they are repaired to avoid other health issues happening from these. Wearing broken dentures not only be painful, but could cause gums to become irritated, inflamed, or scrape them and cause bleeding. This could lead to an infection if the wound does not get time to heal and can be cumbersome and painful for the denture wearer.

Who can fix dentures?

If a person's dentures have become broken or cracked, it is best never to try and repair the dentures yourself. The best thing to do is immediately make an appointment with your dentist. They will be able to look at the dentures and know if they can be repaired or need to be replaced.
