LOOSE DENTURES

 

DENTURES TENDS TO BECOME LOOSE OVER THE COURSE OF USEAGE, MANY OF THESE REASONS FOR THEM TO BE LOOSE ARE PERFECTLY NORMAL. LOOSE-FITTING DENTURES IS THE MOST COMMON REASON, WHICH IS A PROCESS KNOWN AS BONE RESORPTION, WHERE THE GUMS BEGIN TO SHRINK DUE TO THEM NO LONGER NEEDING TO HOLD YOUR TEETH IN PLACE.

THE ONE WAY TO HELP PREVENT BONE RESORPTION IS BY USING YOUR JAW ALWAYS, DON’T WORRY ABOUT CHEWING SOLID FOODS BECAUSE IT SHOULD HELP KEEP YOUR GUMS STRONG AND HEALTHY.

ANOTHER WAY WOULD BE A BALANCED DIET, IT IS A KEY FACTOR IN HELPING TO PREVENT RESORPTION, SO TRY TO INCLUDE A WIDE VARIETY OF NUTRITIONAL FOODS IN YOUR DIET.

THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT CAUSE OF LOOSE DENTURES IS, EVERYDAY WEAR. TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR DENTURES, TAKING YOUR DENTURES OUT AT NIGHT, IS IMPORTANT IN BOTH PRESERVING THEM AND YOUR GUMS.

IS THERE A SOLUTION? YES! WE RECOMMEND RELINING YOUR DENTURES EVERY ONE TO TWO YEARS DUE TO BONE SHRINKAGE.

 

 

TROUBLE SPEAKING

IF IT IS YOUR FIRST TIME GETTING DENTURES, THEN SPEAKING CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT AT FIRST. AT FIRST, THEY MAY FEEL LIKE A FOREIGN OBJECT IN YOUR MOUTH, AND THAT COULD AFFECT WITH SPEECH. IT COULD BE CHALLENGING TO LEARN HOW TO MOVE YOUR TONGUE AROUND THEM TO FORM THE RIGHT SOUNDS, BUT IN TIME, HAVING DENTURES AND SPEAKING WITH ONE WILL BECOME SECOND NATURE.
