How Dr. Brad Beasley helps solve the denture problems of that living in Huntsville and Athens, AL!

Loose or poorly fitting dentures are a common problem for many people. In addition to causing discomfort, making it difficult to eat, and denturescreating potentially embarrassing social and professional situations, loose dentures can irritate your gums and the inside of your mouth. However, there are a few steps that you can take to ensure that your dentures continue to fit and function properly. For more information, you can turn to Dr. Brad Beasley, a dentist who proudly offers comprehensive dentistry services to the residents of Huntsville and Athens, AL!

 

Fix Your Loose Dentures!

Dealing with the aftermath of tooth loss can be difficult enough without having to worry about loose dentures. While modern dentures are designed to offer a secure and comfortable fit, periodic adjustments will be necessary over time to account for changes to your gums, which can shrink over time, especially when there's bone loss.

 

Can Loose Dentures be Prevented?

You may not necessarily be able to prevent common problems like bone resorption (shrinking gums) after tooth loss, but practicing good oral and general health habits and following the care instructions for your dentures can help to ensure a secure and comfortable fit for as long as possible.

The best way to ensure that your dentures continue to fit and function properly, (as well as preserve your overall oral health) is to keep up with your preventive dental care appointments. Dentures usually start to become loose gradually over a period of time, so speak to your dentist as soon as you begin to feel them shifting in your mouth or if you experience any discomforting friction, especially while eating or speaking.

In most cases, the dentist can make adjustments to your dentures to improve the fit or repair mechanical damage so that it fits properly. Always speak to your dentist before attempting any do-it-yourself denture repairs, for DIY treatments often end up damaging the appliances further.
