Frequent Issues with Dentures

Dentures in San DiegoMany denture-related issues occur with the passage of time and the natural changes to a person’s mouth, but many other problems involve people who recently received dentures getting used to the dentures. Some of the most common issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Poor Fit — Nobody wants to experience the humiliation of dentures falling out, and this fear becomes even more pronounced when dentures do not feel securely in place. In some cases, deteriorating gum tissue or jawbone can cause dentures to sit awkwardly. It is important to have ill-fitting dentures looked at quickly in order to avoid possible sores and infections.
  • Difficulty Chewing — Even with dentures to replace missing teeth, some people can still have a hard time consuming certain foods. When dentures cover a person’s palate, it can also affect how food tastes. Dentures should still function like normal teeth, so any chewing issues may be a reason to have dentures adjusted.


  • Bad Look — Some people receive dentures that do not match their natural teeth. Whether it’s the shade or the size that’s mismatched, the difference is notable and thus prevents people from reaping the improved self-confidence benefits that normally come with dentures. You should have poorly created dentures replaced if they are not creating an ideal appearance.



  • Pain — Dentures can occasionally irritate a person’s gums. Failure to properly maintain dentures can also create additional problems, including possible infections such as Cheilitis.



  • Excess Saliva — Most people who her dentures will notice that their mouths are producing more saliva. This is perfectly natural and the effect eventually subsides as the mouth adjusts to the dentures.


  • Bad Breath — People who do not use adhesives with their dentures may have food particles accumulate behind the dentures. Such particles and the lingering plaque can create a very unpleasant odor.
