What Miami area patients can do about poor fitting denturesBy Dr. Marlon Pasquier
Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental often see patients who need to improve the fit and function of their dentures. Poor fitting dentures can not only cause patients to feel self-conscious about themselves when they eat or speak, but it can also cause rubbing and discomfort that can result in sores on the gums. Patients do not have to suffer from problematic dentures, and instead should visit a dental team that can help.
Poor fitting denturesSometimes, dentures fail to fit properly because they were not made correctly. Patients should work with their dentist to ensure dentures fit properly before they leave the dental office. However, changes in the mouth can affect the fit and function. When full dentures are used without dental implants, patients may experience bone loss over time. This bone loss can change the shape and size of the gum ridge the dentures rely on for support. When this happens, patients may notice their dentures do not fit the same way they used to. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. encourage patients to bring their full dentures to every dental appointment so our team can assess the fit and determine if adjustments need to be made. In some cases, a replacement may be necessary.
