Tupelo, MS Dentist - Dr. Richard Caron "Your Dental Health" Denture Maintenance

http://www.tupelosmiles.com/ http://tupelodentist.com/ Denture Maintenance Over time, adjusting your dentures may be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the denture. Your bone and gum ridges can recede or shrink, resulting in a loose-fitting denture. Dentures that do not fit properly should be adjusted by your dentist. Loose dentures can cause various problems, including sores or infections. Never try to adjust your dentures yourself. This can damage the appliance beyond repair. Glues sold over the counter often contain harmful chemicals and should not be used on a denture. If your denture no longer fits properly, or is damaged , see your dentist.
