If you or a family member use dentures, you might be familiar with the frustration and pain related to ill-fitting dentures. If your dentures aren’t the right size, they can slide around and rub against the gums. In many cases, this can cause rawness of the gums and pain.

Why do dentures lose their fit?
Due to natural changes in your gums dentures can lose their fit over time, and waiting to get dentures refitted can lead to pain and calluses called an epulis that may even require surgery. You may even start eating less or sticking to softer foods to reduce the pain associated with your dentures. Don’t let ill-fitting dentures get in the way of your quality of life – if you have loose dentures in Little Rock, Conway, or Jacksonville we have solutions that will save you pain and frustration down the line.
How can I keep my dentures secure?
Even false teeth need as much care as regular teeth to stay in top shape. Even if your dentures fit well now, there are some simple ways to take care of your dentures, keeping them clean and the right size and shape for your mouth. First, make sure to brush your dentures every day to avoid buildup of plaque and permanent stains. Secondly, make sure to store in water or a denture soaking solution. If dentures aren’t kept moist, this can cause them to lose their shape along with all the problems that ill-fitting dentures bring. Thirdly, make sure to clean your dentures regularly and handle them carefully using light dish soap or hand soap.
