What are the signs of loose-fitting dentures?

If you’re experiencing issues with your dentures, it’s essential to recognize the signs of a poor fit. Here are some common indicators of loose-fitting dentures:

  • Discomfort and soreness: If your dentures cause discomfort, sore spots, or gum irritation, it may be a sign that they no longer fit properly. Ill-fitting dentures can lead to constant rubbing and pressure on the gums, causing discomfort and pain.
  • Difficulty chewing and speaking: Loose dentures can make it challenging to chew certain foods and articulate clearly while speaking. If you’re finding it increasingly difficult to eat your favorite meals or communicate effectively, it may be time to address the issue.
  • Slippage and movement: Do your dentures shift or move around while talking, eating, or even laughing? This instability can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Loose dentures can affect your self-confidence and impact your ability to enjoy social interactions.


When is it time to fix loose dentures?

It’s crucial to address loose dentures promptly to avoid further discomfort and potential oral health issues, especially with these two common situations where seeking a solution becomes necessary:

  1. Gum damage: Ill-fitting dentures can cause gum irritation, inflammation, and even the development of sores. If you notice any signs of gum damage, such as redness, swelling, or bleeding, it’s essential to seek professional assistance promptly.
  2. Broken, chipped, or missing teeth: Loose dentures can cause additional problems such as broken, chipped, or missing denture teeth. These issues not only affect the aesthetics of your smile but also compromise the functionality of your dentures.


We have a solution: Dental Implants

At Smile Designers, we offer a reliable and long-lasting solution for loose-fitting dentures: dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. These implants act as artificial tooth roots, ensuring stability and preventing the movement and slippage associated with loose dentures.

Dental implants offer several benefits in improving the stability and functionality of your dentures:

  • Enhanced comfort: Dental implants provide a secure and stable foundation for your dentures, eliminating the discomfort and irritation caused by loose-fitting prosthetics. With dental implants, you can enjoy a pain-free and comfortable fit.
  • Improved chewing efficiency: By stabilizing your dentures, dental implants restore your ability to bite and chew with confidence. You can once again enjoy a varied and nutritious diet without restrictions or worries about your dentures slipping.
  • Natural look and feel: Dental implants provide a natural look and feel to your smile. They integrate seamlessly with your remaining teeth and facial structure, giving you the confidence to smile, speak, and laugh without any self-consciousness.


Dental Implants vs Dentures

While traditional dentures have been a popular choice for tooth replacement, dental implants offer significant advantages:

  • Long-term solution: Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution. With proper care, they can last a lifetime, eliminating the need for frequent denture adjustments or replacements.
  • Bone preservation: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure. This not only maintains your oral health but also ensures a youthful appearance.
  • Stability and functionality: Dental implants provide unparalleled stability, preventing the movement and slippage commonly associated with loose dentures. You can enjoy a secure and confident smile that allows you to engage fully in social and professional activities.

      I was seen promptly for my appointment and got a thorough checkup with multiple x-rays. Dentist was pleasant and explained what I needed to have done (a crown) very clearly and with use of the images that had been taken.

      Hygienist is excellent, no discomfort whatsoever. Covered by my Dental plan. I was in and out with no hesitation 😁

      I’m very happy with the staff and their sincere friendliness. My only concern is that the dentist was doing work on me that was extremely painful, therefore had to give me more shots, which was necessary. The unprofessional thing was he … More said I couldn’t be feeling pain and he argued with me about it. I’ve never had a dentist tell me I wasn’t in pain when it’s my mouth and I’m paying a lot for the services. Very inconsiderate and unprofessional on his part.

      I have been here twice because this is the only office under my insurance. 1st time, hygienist did a very poor job, and the dentist was unpleasant. Yesterday, the hygienist, Mida, did a great job and was super nice.
