Ailments Your Mouth May Face if You Do Not Clean Your Dentures Well EnoughDentures are a great solution for individuals experiencing tooth loss. Also referred to as false teeth, modern dentures are natural-looking and extremely comfortable in comparison to the ones our grandmothers had.

While dentures have many benefits, just like natural teeth, they require proper care and maintenance. Failure to clean your dentures or observe oral hygiene can lead to various problems.

Common Denture Problems

If you have dentures, then it's essential to observe oral hygiene by cleaning your dentures on a regular basis. Before we look at some of the most common denture problems, it's essential first to ensure that your dentures fit well. With that said, here are some of the most common denture problems that you are likely to face.

Cheilitis is a painful infection which causes inflammation. It also results in cracking at the corners of the mouth. A common condition, cheilitis is caused by a continuous build-up of yeast. To prevent this condition, it's essential to book your dental appointment with us on a regular basis.

Just like cheilitis, stomatitis is also caused by an accumulation of yeast in your mouth. It can be challenging to establish whether you have contracted stomatitis because the symptoms are not that obvious. They require a careful examination of your mouth and dentures.

However, there are certain situations where the symptoms will be noticeable. If the symptoms are prominent, then you should expect to see small red bumps or general redness on the roof of your mouth. With proper denture care and prescription, these two ailments can be easily treated.

Treating Denture Problems

If you are experiencing any of the problems discussed above, then you should contact us as soon as possible before the condition worsens. Moreover, if your denture does not fit well, then kindly reach out to us so that we can find the right fit for you.
