Common denture problems
Dentures can be transformative to a person’s life in many ways. They can help to replace lost confidence and restore your smile, and once you are used to your new dentures, they can enable you to eat foods and consume drinks that you might not have been able to previously.
However, there are also a number of common difficulties that a person might experience when they are fitted with new dentures. These problems can include:
Poorly fitted dentures
One common problem with dentures is that they can sometimes be poorly fitted. This can mean they are either too tight or too loose; too tight dentures can cause soreness, rubbing and irritation, while too loose dentures can make it difficult to eat and drink.
Soreness and cheek biting
Patients can also experience soreness as a result of dentures, especially as they learn to adjust to them, and you might find that it is more common to accidentally bite on the inside of your cheeks.
Dentures can have an adverse effect on the types of food that you are able to eat. This means that you will have to learn to chew properly with your dentures and you’ll have to avoid foods that need a significant amount of chewing. In addition, some people will have problems eating sticky foods.
Moreover, there can also be some problems adjusting to drinking common beverages such as tea and coffee.
Excessive saliva and trapped food
Another issue some patients report is trapped food and a build up a saliva behind the dentures. A patient has to be careful that excessive saliva and trapped food doesn’t built up as this can cause further discomfort.
