Dentures are created to replace the form and function of lost or missing natural teeth – the dentures make sure that a person can still smile, eat and talk in a normal way, even after experiencing tooth loss. The development of denture problems greatly affects the denture wearer – the discomfort that denture problems bring can diminish even a person’s brightest smile.
The problem starts when dentures do not fit comfortably; the dentures begin to rub and chafe on the gums, and this repeated rubbing can cause the gums to be irritated and bleed. It will be extremely difficult for a person to chew or even talk with ill-fitting dentures!
The best way to deal with denture problems is to make sure that the dentures always fit comfortably. Ask your dentist for adjustments on dentures whenever necessary; you can also ask your dentist for suggestions on what denture adhesives, denture creams or denture cushions would be best in dealing with your denture problems. Keep in mind that you can do something about ill-fitting dentures – because you deserve to have the most comfortably-fitting dentures you can possibly have.
