Miami dentist describes solutions for ill-fitting dentures

Full dentures are a common method of tooth replacement for many patients in Miami. The father and son team at Miami Modern Dental may recommend full dentures when patients are faced with replacing an entire arch of teeth for better function, aesthetics, and health. Full dentures are fabricated of acrylic and include false teeth and gum tissue. They are kept in place on the gum line with natural suction, over-the-counter dental adhesives, or dental implants, depending on the needs of patients.

While full dentures are incredibly popular, they can be troublesome for some people. Full dentures have a tendency to become ill-fitting over time. This is because dentures do not maintain bone structure in the jaw. Without teeth or dental implants in place, patients will experience the shrinking of the jawbone. This causes changes in the structure and affects the fit and function of a full denture. Telltale signs that dentures need to be adjusted includes:
  • Shifting of the denture
  • Sores on the gums
  • Discomfort during wear
  • Dentures that fall out during use
Patients should not repair their dentures on their own. This can cause damage and may necessitate complete replacement. Instead, patients are urged to visit Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental for professional adjustments to ensure proper results.
