Dentures replace the form and function of lost natural teeth, but problems start anew when the dentures become loose. Denture wearers complain of a number of difficulties with using a set of loose dentures, and these problems are usually associated with long-term denture use.
Listed below are some of the problems that loose denture wearers face on a daily basis:
Difficulty in Chewing
Chewing on food becomes difficult when the (false) teeth do not stay in place.
Difficulty in Speaking Clearly
Clear speech can be challenging if dentures repeatedly and uncontrollably move inside the mouth.
Pain or Discomfort (Mouth Sores)
Loose dentures rub against the soft tissues inside the mouth. This continuous rubbing can result to the development of painful mouth sores or mouth ulcers.
Dentures Making a Clicking Noise
Ill-fitting dentures make an irritating clicking noise when the mouth is opened, or even with the slightest mouth movement.
One of the greatest fears of those using loose dentures? That the ill-fitting dentures will suddenly fall out of their mouth, causing extreme embarrassment.
