Common Problems Faced by Denture Wearers: Broken or Ill-Fitting Dentures

 

As you wear your dentures, you may encounter a few common issues that could be affecting both your comfort and confidence. One of these problems is broken dentures.
Accidents happen, and a broken denture can be a source of stress and inconvenience.

Another common challenge is ill-fitting dentures, which could lead to discomfort, difficulty speaking, and problems with chewing properly. We understand that both of these issues can have a significant impact on your daily life and overall well-being, so it’s important to handle the situation properly.

 

How to Handle Broken Dentures: Steps to Take

 

If dealing with a broken denture, it’s important that you avoid attempting to fix the problem yourself using adhesives or household materials. This can potentially damage the denture further and make professional repairs more challenging.

Instead, gather all the pieces of your denture, store them in a safe place, and reach out to your dentist. They will have the expertise and specialized tools to restore your denture to its original functionality.

Once you contact your dentist, they will schedule an appointment to assess the extent of the damage and provide you with the best solution. In some cases, a denture repair may be possible, while in others, a denture replacement may be recommended.

The goal is to ensure your denture is repaired efficiently and effectively, so you can get back to enjoying a confident smile and a comfortable fit.

 

 Addressing Ill-Fitting Dentures: Seeking Professional Assistance

 

Ill-fitting dentures can cause a range of issues, from sore spots and gum irritation, to difficulties in speaking and chewing.
If you’re experiencing any discomfort or noticing changes in the fit of your dentures, it’s crucial to seek professional assistance promptly. Ignoring the problem could lead to further oral health complications and potentially worsen the fit over time.

When visiting Kettering Dental and Implant Clinic, our dentists will work to evaluate your dentures and oral health as to identify the cause of the ill fit recommend any denture adjustments or modifications to ensure optimal comfort.
In some cases, denture replacement may be necessary if your current dentures are beyond repair or have become ill-fitting due to changes in your jaw structure.
