If you’ve been wearing dentures for some time, you’re probably aware that while they do an adequate job of replacing the appearance of a complete smile, they often have many functional limitations. Dentures also may seem to initially restore your teeth, but underneath the surface, your natural jawbone is resorbing, or shrinking away. This bone resorption will continue (dentures accelerate this process), and your bone will become thin and flat, while the shape and size of your denture remain the same. This is why your dentures feel loose whenever you eat or talk, even if you use pastes or adhesives, and why you may often experience painful sores along your gums. Unfortunately, without relining or replacing, your dentures will never fit comfortably again.
