What if my dentures are loose?
Loose dentures are embarrassing and uncomfortable. You might be out for brunch with friends, and as you bite into your gourmet muffin, your dentures come loose and fall. Horrifying, right? After all, no one wants to advertise that they wear dentures. Plus, getting food caught under them is uncomfortable. Modern dentistry has reduced dentures mishaps, improving the lives of our patients.
Fit of Dentures
Conventional dentures need to be replaced every 5-8 years because the bone structure of your mouth changes. Weight loss, weight gain, and other medical conditions can also lead to a change in how your dentures fit.
We may be able to reline your dentures in our office or send them out on an expedited lab reline, minimizing the time you have to go without your teeth. Relines are a temporary fix and replacement will ultimately give you better results. We also offer implant-retained dentistry and TeethXpress in our Lake Fort Worth dental office as an alternative to full and partial dentures.
One of our experienced dentists will discuss all of your options and present them to you so that you can eat and smile confidently again.
Give us a call and schedule an evaluation. We are here to help you live life to the fullest with high-quality dentistry.
