False teeth are a necessary part of life for many people. If you wear false teeth and you’re having problems with the way they fit, you don’t have to put up with that uncomfortable and even painful feeling. There are things that can be done to your teeth to help them fit better in your mouth including the use of denture implants. You might think that it’s just necessary to be more careful when you talk or laugh so that you don’t end up embarrassed by slipping dentures. But there are other things to consider about ill-fitting false teeth that go beyond embarrassment. Teeth that don’t fit properly can actually rub sore spots on your gums, as you probably already know, and they can cause serious problems when chewing.
If you don’t take steps to make your dentures fit better, and sometimes that doesn’t even involve denture implants but a simple trip to the lab for refitting, you can end up with a lot more than embarrassment and a little pain. The very act of chewing can rub your dentures against your gums and cause a sore or blister. You might have already have had something like this happen to you before. Often, these types of blisters get so large and painful that it’s impossible to wear the teeth until they heal. So not only will you have to go without the teeth, which means chewing without them and either avoiding social situations or going without the teeth in, but you’ll have the pain of healing from irritation. A denture implant procedure can help prevent all of this.
Don’t hesitate to talk to your dentist if your dentures are slipping or if they’re uncomfortable. Many different types of adjustments can be made in a laboratory that do not require any type of invasive procedure on you such as denture implants. But don’t be afraid of the procedure if you need the implants because they’ll make a huge difference in your day-to-day life and help you avoid mouth pain and potentially embarrassing denture slips.
