5 Sure-Fire Signs Your Dentures Are in Need of Repair

Are your dentures feeling loose or causing you discomfort? Here are 5 signs that you may need to visit your Calgary denturist for a denture repair. 

Dentures are an affordable, convenient, and comfortable tooth replacement solution that allows patients to enjoy a beautiful and natural-looking smile, even if you’re missing one or more teeth. However, the aesthetics and quality of your replacement teeth will only reflect the effort you put into maintaining them. 

Failing to take care of, or quickly repair, your dentures will lead to serious problems such as: 

  • Difficulty speaking and eating 
  • Mouth sores 
  • Oral discomfort
  • Higher risk of gum disease or further tooth loss

5 Signs You Need Denture Repairs 

Traditional dentures have come a long way, and today they are more natural-looking and comfortable than ever and have allowed our Calgary patients to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. However, if you have opted for dentures, it’s important to take care of them properly to prevent any damage. 

Did you drop your dentures? Do they feel loose or uncomfortable? Here are 5 signs that you may require denture repair services: 

1. Your Dentures are Broken 

If you accidentally put too much pressure on your dentures, drop them, or step on them, you may end up breaking a replacement tooth. NEVER attempt to reattach this yourself as you may cause more serious and permanent damage, or it may result in an irregular fit. 

If you have dropped or damaged your dentures, you should visit your local denture clinic as soon as possible to have them repaired. 

2. You’re Having Trouble Chewing 

While it’s very normal for new denture wearers to need time to adjust to their replacement teeth, if you experience difficulty chewing, you may need to adjust your new dentures. This could be a sign that your replacement teeth need to be refitted to the exact shape of your gums. 

3. Your Dentures Are Causing Pain or Discomfort 

If you invest in a pair of quality dentures, you should NEVER experience pain or discomfort. That’s why it’s important to visit your denturist if you experience any: 

  • Mouth sores
  • Jaw soreness
  • Uneven pressure on your gums 
  • Denture looseness 

Tip: If you are experiencing sharp pain near or on your canine teeth, this could be an indication of bone reabsorption and it needs to be discussed with your denturist as soon as possible. 

4. You’re Noticing Some Facial Changes

Your teeth play an important role in keeping your cheeks looking full and even, and helping you look young. Your denture solution should perform this task as well as your natural teeth. If you notice any changes to your facial appearance, in your cheeks, or jawline, you may need a denture repair or adjustment. 

5. Your Gums Are Irritated 

When you first wear your new replacement teeth, they can feel strange and foreign, but once you adjust, they should NEVER irritate your gums. That’s why it’s important to watch out for signs such as: 

  • Gum inflammation 
  • Sore spots
  • Bleeding

Such signs can indicate a problem with the denture’s surface, which is why you should never settle for low quality and cheap dentures. Visit your denturist to have your replacement teeth adjusted or repaired.
