Comfortable Dentures in Jacksonville
Everyone loses their dentures from time to time, and many of us make the mistake of soaking them in hot water. Whether you need your first pair of dentures or need new ones that fit better, our compassionate professionals are here to help.
Do I Need New Dentures?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I have mouth pain while wearing dentures?
- Are my dentures loose?
- Are my dentures more than 10 years old?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you probably need new dentures. Mouth pain should not be present when dentures fit right, and they should not move around when you talk if they have even a small amount of adhesive.
Over time, your jawbone can deteriorate if there are no teeth in the sockets. This leads to a natural change in your jaw structure, which causes an improper fit and pain in some cases. But we can refit your dentures so they fit comfortably once again.
How Am I Fitted for Dentures?
If you are new to using dentures, rest assured that they are not as bad as you might think. Dentures are held in place by suction when they fit your mouth correctly. To determine the unique contours of your mouth, a dentist will make an impression of your teeth and gums. Dentures are then carefully crafted to duplicate the mold, which means an optimal fit in your mouth.
The dentures and partials may include your natural teeth or artificial ones depending on your circumstances and preferences.
