Common Denture Problems and Solutions in Oakville, ON


Common Denture Problems and Solutions in Oakville, ON Area

The use of dentures is a common way to help replace teeth that need to be removed. While dentures are durable and can be unnoticeable, there are issues that could develop that could make them less effective and even uncomfortable to wear. Fortunately, there are almost always solutions to these problems. There are many different denture problems and solutions in Oakville, ON, area residents should be aware of.

Poor Fit and Comfort

A set of dentures will need to be worn throughout the day. Because of this, it is crucial that your dentures feel comfortable. When you have dentures created, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth to ensure you get a correct fit. However, your gum and bone structure can change with time, which could make the dentures less comfortable to wear. In these situations, a dentist can take a new impression and alter the dentures accordingly to ensure they work well again. Another short-term solution would be to use a dental adhesive, which can help your dentures remain in place for a short period of time until you are able to receive a more permanent solution.

Mouth Infections

Another issue that people can have with dentures is a mouth infection. If you have a mouth infection, you likely will notice pain and inflammation in your mouth in areas that have direct contact with the dentures. This can occur as a result of damage to the dentures or not wearing them properly. A dentist will be able to inspect the dentures to ensure they are in good working order and make repairs as necessary. You also need to ensure that you follow good hygiene practices, which can include cleaning them properly and not wearing dentures at night.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
