It happened again! This time you were eating lunch with your friends when your dentures slipped and fell into your soup. This created a completely embarrassing situation, and you’ve had enough! There must be some options for helping your dentures fit better? Or maybe you need a new one? Your dentist in Midland has some solutions for you, here’s what you should know.
Why Doesn’t My Denture Fit Properly Anymore?
Traditional dentures rely on a secure fit and suction to your jaw bone to stay in place. Over time, the pressure that is applied to your jaw bone to keep your denture properly fitting causes your bone to deteriorate. This affects the fit of your denture.
Dentures will need to be relined periodically to ensure a good fit, and this is why yearly denture checks with your dentist are recommended.
Other Options for a More Secure Fit
You may think that your denture needs to be replaced if it continues to slip and move when you eat or talk; however, did you know that dental implants can be used to support a denture?
Your denture can attach to a few strategically placed implants to provide a more secure and stable fit than traditional dentures. The other benefit of implant-supported dentures is that they help to keep your jaw bone healthy and stimulated, which prevents deterioration and provides better longevity for your denture.
