The greatest benefit that dentures provide to patients is the fact that they allow them to enjoy the advantages of having a full set of teeth again. Going through the horrible experience of losing teeth or getting them extracted and then having no teeth can have a grave impact on your self-esteem and emotional health. Thanks to advance dentistry, dentists are able to provide dentures as a solution that provides a completely natural-like appearance that is virtually undetectable.

Many patients ask, though, why their dentures seem to grow uncomfortable over time. The truth of the matter is that our bodies change over time, so this can have an impact on your dentures as well.

Teeth provide stimulation to your jaw which actually is what maintains the jaw line. Since there are no more teeth at the point that you have full dentures, the jaw no longer has the needed stimulation and it can occur that the jaw begins to change in shape and size, ultimately leading to dentures becoming loose. Additionally, dentures become loose over time just due to normal wear and tear.

If your dentures have become loose, it is important to address it with your dentist. There are a number of things that can be done in order to stop them from becoming loose but our Glendale dentist will help you decide what the next step is after this occurs. Remember, we are here for your every dental need. Call us today!
