Tips to Help End Annoying Problems with Your Permanent Dentures

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

If you’re avoiding dentures because your grandparents wore awkward, unrealistic false teeth, you should check out modern denture options that an affordable dentist can offer. Today’s permanent dentures are comfortable to wear and look more like natural teeth than the crude designs of yesteryear. Unfortunately, you may still experience a few annoying denture problems until you adjust to wearing them. Most are manageable and won’t stop you from enjoying years of successful wear.

Here are some of the most common denture-related issues:

Poorly fitting dentures cause a number of problems. As you get older, your bones and gums will change, and dentures may not fit as well as before. The changes can lead to problems with speaking or eating, dentures that move around in your mouth and mouth irritation. The fit of your dentures must be professionally adjusted by your dentist—don’t attempt denture adjustments yourself.

Eating problems can be managed by taking small bites, eating slowly and sticking to soft foods until symptoms resolve. Chew with both sides of your mouth at once; this method helps prevent tipping and movement of dentures. Commercial adhesives can be helpful, but they are not a replacement for professional adjustment.

Speaking problems are most common in new wearers. Speak slowly, and practice challenging words when you are alone. If laughing or smiling causes your dentures to move out of place, bite down gently and swallow to reposition them. Be sure to have your dentist adjust the fit.

Gum and mouth soreness is usually related to fitting problems, but it can also result from infections or poor hygiene. Be sure to keep your dentures clean. Over-the-counter oral anesthetics containing benzocaine can help dull the pain, but if symptoms persist, see your dentist in College Park.

Cheilitis and stomatitis are serious infections caused by yeast overgrowth. Cheilitis causes pain, redness and cracking at the corners of your mouth. Stomatitis may manifest as small red bumps under upper dentures or general mouth redness. Both are treated with prescription medications and strict oral hygiene.

Dentures are intended to make your life easier, not harder; see an affordable dentist immediately if you develop symptoms that interfere with daily living.
