How Dentures Help

If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth, which will improve your health as well as your appearance. Dentures prevent the sagging of facial muscles, which makes a person with no teeth look much older. Dentures also enable you to eat and speak normally, little things often taken for granted until natural teeth are lost.

Taking Care Of Dentures

Brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and to help remove plaque. Regular dental checkups are needed so we can examine your mouth and dentures to ensure a healthy and comfortable fit. The dentist will eventually need to do denture adjustments for you because the fit won’t stay the same forever!

Why Patients Should NOT Do Their Own Denture adjustments

If your dentures are bothering you, and you’re a do-it-yourselfer, it may be tempting to grab sand paper and a jack knife and do your own denture adjustments. Please do not do your own denture adjustments! Patients who do their own denture adjustments usually end up with mouth problems and ruined dentures that cost a lot to replace. Why?

  • Denture adjustment work is delicate work that requires vast knowledge of pressure points in the mouth and how they impact each other.

    Denture adjustments involve much more than sanding down the specific areas that are bothering you. They involve balancing the dentures out so that the pressure points in the mouth receive balanced pressure at the right times.

  • Even the tiniest error in denture adjustment can create big problems.

    The way your mouth and teeth move and function impacts your gums, bones and jaws. The impact of a tiny error or inconsistency in denture adjustment work, multiplied by the thousands of times you bite down every day, can be disastrous for your tooth, gum, bone and jaw health. This is why denture adjustments should only be done in a dental lab by highly qualified and experienced professionals.

  • You won’t realize the negative impact of do-it-yourself denture adjustments until the damage is already done!

    You may not feel the negative impact of your do-it-yourself denture adjustments until you’re in pain and that means that the damage to your mouth is already done!

  • Do-it-yourself denture adjustments cause mouth irritation and injury.

    Again, a fraction of a millimeter difference in a denture adjustment can mean the difference between mouth irritation and injury and a healthy mouth.

  • Gum infections come with irritation and injury.

    Do-it-yourself denture adjustments lead to mouth irritation. When the skin in the mouth is broken or raw and bacteria from your saliva or food get into it, this can cause a serious mouth infection that can spread to your jaw bone and other areas of your mouth.

  • Do-it-yourself denture adjustments cost more! How?

    Have you ever heard the expression, “Doing it right the first time is cheaper than doing damage control after you’ve done it wrong?” That expression applies here. Fixing mistakes in do-it-yourself denture adjustments is expensive…more expensive than having a correct adjustment done by a professional the first time around. Often times, the self denture adjustments cause enough damage for dentists to have to replace the dentures entirely because they’re damaged beyond repair.
