|Teeth are important, and losing them can cause you to experience challenges in performing basic tasks such as eating and talking. On top of that, missing teeth can be a confidence killer, especially in social situations.
Fortunately, dentures offer a simple and cost-effective solution to missing teeth, which helps you to get your smile back. However, there is one slight issue when it comes to denture – finding and maintaining a perfect fit.
Fitting Problems with DenturesFor the perfect appearance and functioning of your dentures, they must fit perfectly. However, this is not always the case. In some situations, the dentures fail to fit perfectly right from the start. Over time, the structure of the gums and jawbone also changes, which leads to further fitting problems.
The structure of the dentures can also change over time, either due to wear and tear or poor maintenance practices.
As a result, the dentures develop a loose fitting, which can lead to a number of complications, including inflammation of the oral tissue, problems when chewing food, and speech problems. Loose dentures can also come loose, which can be embarrassing when in public.
When these problems occur, they can be resolved through adjustments. However, if the fitting problems persist, replacing the dentures is a better solution. This is particularly the case when your dentures have lasted for a long period.
How Replacing Your Old Dentures Can HelpReplacing your old dentures will allow you to get new ones, which are made specifically for the current structure of your teeth. This will guarantee a better and more comfortable fit.
The perfect fit of the new dentures will also improve the functioning of your mouth (with tasks such as chewing). Aside from that, you will also enjoy better-looking dentures, which will be a huge confidence booster when you are talking, smiling, or laughing.
