Slipping Dentures: Now What?

It’s a wonderful day when you receive your full dentures! They replace your teeth, you have a full beautiful smile back, and your quality of life skyrockets. That is true, of course, as long as you are enjoying comfortable, consistent wear with steadfast stability. When things change, though, and your dentures begin to slip, rub, or just feel different, it can become quite alarming. What to do, you wonder? Follow our suggestions for the best results.

Try Adhesives

If you’re just dealing with minor issues with slipping when you’re wearing full dentures, there’s no need to panic. You may simply require a little help with the suction that your mouth usually provides for you. Consider trying adhesives that you can purchase at your drugstore. They can give you the additional security you need, so you know dentures will remain in place.

Recognize Something Could Be Wrong

Now, let’s say it’s not just a very small suction issue but you’re having some serious problems keeping your full dentures in place or achieving comfort. This might mean that they are damaged or no longer fit. Unfortunately, this may lead to more than just frustration. Ill-fitting dentures can rub, lead to sores, cause infection, etc. So, it’s best to respond to these types of changes right away.
