Dentures can become weak over time, which leads to breakage which then results in your dentures no longer fitting your mouth correctly. Common issues stem from gum shrinkage and a change in shape. Dentures are also prone to suffer from daily wear and tear through chewing and talking, and this can result in weaker dentures.
Common denture issues
Even though dentures perform like natural teeth, they aren’t as strong as your natural teeth, which is why they can break. Other reasons why dentures break is because too much pressure is applied, when this happens do not attempt to fix them yourself, instead, have a professional repair them.
If you find that you are experiencing any form of discomfort when you are wearing your denture, including looseness or pressure on your gums, then you should see a denture specialist.
Another common issue that might arise is inflammation of your gums, bleeding and raw spots, and these issues indicate that your dentures are irritating your gums.
Bad breath is also an issue you might face if your dentures are not being adequately maintained, or your dentures have unseen cracks or chips where odours can linger.
