Complete dentures can be the perfect way to repair a smile after the loss or extraction of all the teeth in the dental arch. The team of The Dental Implant Clinic in the Carshalton Beeches area encourages patients to consider this restoration as an affordable and effective way of bringing back beauty and function to the smile. However, there are times in which dentures may not fit properly or may not be working as well as they should. This is when our team may suggest making fine adjustments for complete dentures as a troubleshooting solution.
Troubleshooting denture problems must be done with someone who understands the functions of the smile and the muscular development and function of the mouth. This is because the muscles and the ridges of the bone and gum tissue are important for the best function of the dentures.
There are several concerns that may develop with dentures that can cause them to become ill-fitting. This includes:
- Overextension of denture borders
- Faulty vertical dimension
- Speech issues
- Mucosal irritations
- Physiological failures
- Hypersalivation (also known as sialorrhea)
- Denture lift issues
- Irritation of the gum tissue
Our professionals are knowledgeable with these conditions and have the experience to handle them in the most appropriate manner. The team of The Dental Implant Clinic can work with patients to make the proper adjustments for a better fitted denture. In some cases, they may recommend patients consider implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are held in place with implants used strategically along the dental arch. These titanium metal restorations are inserted with oral surgery, and then the dentures are made to snap into place with them. This provides a solid foundation for dentures for them to work to their best ability.
