Replacing lost or missing teeth is very good for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces your natural teeth and gives support to your cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person look older and they will find it harder to eat and speak properly.
If you treat your dentures well, they should last several years. However, your dentures will need to be relined or re-made because of normal wear, or a change in the shape of your mouth. Bone and gum ridges can shrink, causing your jaws to meet differently. Loose dentures can cause discomfort, and health problems including sores and infections. A loose or badly fitting dentures can also make eating and talking more difficult. It is important to replace worn or badly fitting dentures before they cause problems.
According to the American Dental Association, there is, inevitably, the potential for problems to arise subsequent to the insertion of complete dentures. These problems may be transient and may be essentially disregarded by the patient or they may be serious enough to result in the patient being unable to tolerate the dentures.
Factors causing problems may be grouped, essentially into four causes:
• Adverse intra-oral anatomical factors egatrophic mucosa.
• Clinical factors eg poor denture stability.
• Technical factors eg failure to preserve the peripheral roll on a master cast.
• Patient adaptional factors.
