Loose Dentures

Question : I had my complete dentures a year ago. I noticed this morning that they are becoming loose. What should I do?

Answer : See a dentist immediately. Have them adjusted by a dentist. When your teeth are lost, the bone begins to resorb. When the complete dentures are placed, this process continues until the dentures no longer fit on your edentulous ridge.

Loose dentures also enhance bone resorption.

Your dentist will probably do a reline. A denture reline will fill in the gap between the complete dentures and your ridge with acrylic resin so that the dentures fit your ridge again.

Will my dentures affect how do I eat?

Question: Will my dentures affect how do I eat?

Answer: Yes. Your chewing efficiency is lesser as compared to natural teeth. Your incising force is reduced compared to natural dentition. Your dentures should be adjusted very well so that your occlusion will not be affected. The occlusion and the remaining teeth will dictate how the dentures will be adjusted. Chewing with your dentures needs practice.

How should I clean my denture?

Question: How should I clean my denture?

Answer: Fill a plastic basin with cold water. This will provide a cushion should the denture be dropped. Over it, hold your denture gently. Brush your denture gently with a “soft bristle” toothbrush and “mild” dishwashing liquid. Brush all surfaces of the denture. Rinse it very well with cold water. You should clean your dentures every after meal.
