FAQ for Denture
The most concern about denture is how to deal with loosening. I think that the most effective
approach is implant retained denture. Two to four implants and attachments help to create better
retention. I have those questions from my denture patients.
Should I use a denture adhesive?
Denture adhesive can provide additional retention for well-fitting dentures. Denture adhesives are not the
solution for old, ill-fitting dentures. A poorly fitting denture, which causes constant irritation over a long
period, may contribute to the development of sores. These dentures may need a reline or need to be
replaced. If your dentures begin to feel loose, or cause pronounced discomfort, consult with your dentist
Will my dentures need to be replaced?
Over time, dentures will need to be relined, rebased, or remade due to normal wear. To reline or rebase a
denture, the dentist uses the existing denture teeth and refits the denture base or makes a new denture
base. Dentures may need to be replaced if they become loose and the teeth show signs of significant
wear. Dentures become loose because a mouth naturally changes with age. Bone and gum ridges can
recede or shrink, causing jaws to align differently. Shrinking ridges can cause dentures to fit less securely.
Loose dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections. A loose denture also makes
chewing more difficult and may change your facial features. It's important to replace worn or poorly-fitting
dentures before they cause problems.
