Dentures are made to last as long as possible. However, as we age, our bone or gum tissues may start to shrink – causing our denture to feel loose or not fit properly. As a result, your dentures could cause pain or feel loose when you talk. If this is the case, you may need to have your dentures adjusted or relined.
What are some of the symptoms you should watch for?
As a denture wearer, you should continue to visit your dentist regularly for check-ups. He or she will assess your prosthesis for a proper fit, as well as recommend adjustments if needed. If you are beginning to notice any of the above symptoms – call your dentist right away.
