Win the War on Common Denture-Related Problems

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

If you’ve lost your natural teeth, permanent dentures can be a perfect solution. Unlike appliances of the past, today’s full and partial dentures look and feel more like natural teeth. They’re more comfortable than the awkward false teeth your grandfather wore, and it’s easier to find an affordable dentist to craft your new dentures to perfection. However, wearing dentures does require some adjustment, and denture problems can occur for both new and seasoned wearers.

Here are four tips for dealing with the most common denture issues you may face:

  1. Speaking problems are most common in new wearers. Try pronouncing words slowly and clearly. If certain words are more difficult than others, practice saying them aloud when you are alone. If laughing or smiling causes your dentures to move out of place, bite down gently and swallow to reposition them. Be sure to have your dentist adjust the fit.
  2. Ill-fitting dentures cause a number of problems. As you get older, the gum tissues and bones in your mouth change shape and position; this may cause your dentures to fit differently. The changes can lead to problems with speaking or eating, dentures that move around in your mouth and mouth irritation. See your dentist as soon as symptoms occur; do not attempt to adjust your dentures.
  3. Problems with eating can be managed by taking small bites, eating slowly and sticking to soft foods until symptoms resolve. Chew with both sides of your mouth at once; this method helps prevent tipping and movement of dentures. Commercial adhesives can be helpful, but they are not a replacement for professional adjustment.
  4. Mouth and gum soreness is usually related to fitting problems, but it can also result from infections or poor hygiene. Be sure to keep your dentures clean. Oral anesthetics can be helpful to reduce pain, but see your dentist if soreness persists.

Stomatitis and cheilitis are serious infections caused by yeast overgrowth. Cheilitis causes pain, redness, and cracking at the corners of your mouth. Stomatitis may manifest as small red bumps under upper dentures or general mouth redness. Both are treated with prescription medications and strict oral hygiene. Dentures are intended to make your life easier, not harder; see your dentist in Tampa immediately if you develop symptoms that interfere with daily living.
