When you get fitted for dentures and they are comfortable and well-fitting, it’s easy to assume they’ll stay that way forever. At first, it may seem like your dentures will always fit just like they did on day one, especially if you’re always properly maintaining your oral health. But, like the rest of your body, the characteristics of your mouth can become different over time, as the shape of your gums and the bone structure in your mouth will naturally change.
Avoid Irritation In Your Gums
Because of this shifting, the fit of your dentures also changes over time, making them less comfortable and reducing your quality of life. Ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation, tenderness in your gums, and even sores in your mouth. Living with dentures that no longer fit well can affect your ability to chew properly, and speaking can become a challenge, leading to slurring, lisping, and other speech difficulties.
We Offer Various Options
The good news is, you may not need a full new set of dentures to smile, eat and speak properly again!
Whether you need a “soft” or “hard” reline, we update the fit of your dentures, adapting them to fit the current shape of your mouth. We even offer temporary or therapeutic relines when needed to make the entire process more comfortable.
At Changing Smiles, we offer free consultations for anyone considering dental implants.
We’ll perform an oral exam to make sure you’re a candidate for implants and give you a detailed treatment plan. If you’re interested, then don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule your appointment.
