Loose Dentures Explained
Loose dentures are a typical denture problem, and at Complete Implant and Sedation Dentistry we will be happy to assess your situation and to make recommendations for improvement. Removable dentures come in different models: full dentures, to replace a full set of missing teeth, or partial dentures, replacing one or more missing teeth.
For many people, full dentures can be problematic and embarrassing if they feel bulky in the mouth, get loose or move during speech or chewing, or look unnatural.
What Causes Loose Dentures?
The longer we are missing our teeth, the more our supporting gums and our jaw bone tend to shrink (a process called atrophy). When wearing removable dentures, this means you occasionally need relining or a replacement, to improve the fit of your dentures. As time passes, the gum and bone may become too small to support your denture appropriately at all.
Lower full dentures are more often affected by this evolution, because the denture is sitting on the gum by gravity only. Upper full dentures tend to take longer to become problematic, since these have a “suction” effect in the mouth, by covering and compressing the soft palate (the roof of the mouth), but upper full denture problems still often take place when bone shrinkage (upper jaw atrophy) becomes advanced with long term tooth loss.
