What are some common denture problems and solutions?
- Problem: Difficulty eating or speaking.
- Solution: It takes time to adjust to dentures, so be patient and practice saying common words and sounds until they become easier. Patients dealing with difficulties eating should start with softer foods and ensure they are inserting their dentures correctly.
- Problem: Difficulty keeping dentures clean.
- Solution: Use proper products to keep dentures clean and ask the dentist about any specific products they may recommend that are available over-the-counter or through the dental practice.
- Problem: Dentures loosen over time.
- Solution: Changes can occur to the gums and bone over time, so patients must visit Sherwood Dental when they are experiencing loose or ill-fitted dentures. This allows our team to provide proper adjustments to modify the dentures and ensure proper fit and function.
- Problem: Irritation of the soft tissues in the mouth.
- Solution: When dentures do not fit properly, they can cause unwanted irritation of the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. If patients continue to feel pain and irritation that lasts more than a week, call and make an appointment to have the denture assessed.
- Problem: Traveling with dentures.
- Solution: It is critical to have the proper supplies for cleaning and care while on the road or travelling by plane. Make sure you always have the tools and instruments you need to keep your dentures clean while vacationing.
