Dentures can be invaluable for patients suffering from tooth loss, dramatically improving their appearance and quality of life. By restoring a full set of teeth, dentures allow you to once again look, speak and eat in a natural and comfortable way.

And while denture cost is an important factor, it’s crucial to keep in mind that in order for dentures to provide the full extent of their benefits, they must provide a consistently good fit.

Unfortunately, ill-fitting and cheap dentures are a serious problem that is commonly overlooked by patients, resulting in a number of negative health effects.

Identifying Cheap Dentures

Unfortunately, many of the problems associated with ill-fitting and cheap dentures are believed to be ‘normal’ for false teeth. In reality, any obvious issues with dentures are a sign that they need to be adjusted or replaced with a better-fitting, higher-quality set.

High-quality dentures should:

  • Be Comfortable: Although patients may require some time to initially grow accustomed to their new set of teeth, dentures should never result in perpetual pain or discomfort.

  • Be a Good Fit: Dentures should never come loose unexpectedly. While small amounts of adhesive cream may be needed for a more reliable hold, they should never continually pull away from your gums.

  • Function Like Natural Teeth: Cheap dentures can cause patients to experience problems eating and speaking as well as the embarrassment of teeth moving around unnaturally.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to consult a denturist before any additional oral health complications arise.

Common Problems Caused by Cheap Dentures

When poorly fitting dentures are worn for extended periods of time, they can result in oral problems that extend beyond aesthetics and convenience.

Some common effects of their continued use include:

  • Trouble eating: Cheap dentures tend to be loose or painful and as a result, some foods may become difficult to eat. Consequently, it is much harder for patients to enjoy foods they love and, more importantly, to follow a balanced and nutritious diet.

  • Irritated gums: When dentures don’t exactly fit the contours of your mouth, they are more likely to rub against your gum tissue in an unnatural way. As a result, your gums may become swollen and painful from irritation.

  • Mouth soreness: When your gum tissue is irritated and inflamed, you may experience heightened sensitivity and soreness in your mouth.

  • Blisters: Ill-fitting and cheap dentures tend to rub against specific areas of the mouth, forming blisters. This will increase the discomfort patients may experience and risk further complications when damaged.

  • Impeded bite: When teeth don’t properly align, patients are more likely to have an impeded bite. This may cause saliva to pool near the corners of the mouth, resulting in a fungal infection that causes inflammation and pain.
