Having well-fitted and functioning dentures can significantly enhance your quality of life by enabling you to eat, speak, and smile with ease and confidence. However, over time, your dentures may lose their fit and function due to factors such as wear and tear, changes in oral structure, and changes in denture material. If you have been wearing your dentures for five or more years, it may be time for a checkup. In this blog post, we will explain why you should have your existing dentures checked by our complete denturists at Community Denture Centre in Penticton or Oliver.
Importance of regular denture checkups
Regular checkups of your existing dentures are essential to maintain their fit and function and ensure your continued oral health. Our denturists will examine your dentures, your mouth, and your oral tissues to detect any changes and determine if any adjustments or repairs are needed. By diagnosing and addressing problems early, we can prevent further damage and discomfort and prolong the life of your dentures.
Signs that your dentures need attention
Even if you do not experience pain or discomfort, there are some signs that your dentures may need attention. These include:
- Loose fit or slipping out of your mouth
- Difficulty chewing or biting
- Sore spots or irritation on your gums or oral tissues
- Changes in your bite or facial appearance
- Cracks, chips, or stains on your dentures
If you notice any of these signs, or if it has been more than five years since you had your dentures checked, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
