When your jaw clenches while you sleep, your gums press together with excessive force. This can lead to accelerated bone loss.

Posted on 1/17/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
With proper care, your dentures will last for a long time, but they are not indestructible. There are several signs that indicate you need to have them replaced as your gums may suffer and lead to several problems. One obvious sign that tells you need to have your dentures replaced is when your gums become red, swollen, or tender. It might also begin to bleed because the dentures are already pressing through your gums. So, what do you do if you need to have your dentures replaced? Talk with Your Dentist Immediately When You Experience the Initial SignsYour dentist can recommend a denture replacement if he sees that your denture is already causing problems. A loose denture can also become a big problem and social embarrassments are always bound to happen. To prevent these instances from happening, it is best to seek advice from your dentist as they are the best ones who can provide you with recommendations. Talking with your dentist will also be helpful to uncover problems that are already cropping up including a receding bone and gum ridge caused by disproportionate dentures. Have Yourself Refitted with New DenturesDiscomforts and difficulty chewing can only be corrected with a new set of dentures. If your old one is already causing severe pain when eating, it is best to consult with your dentist first and have yourself fitted with a new denture if possible. This way you prevent further damage to your gums and maintain a good oral health. Having yourself refitted with a new set of dentures will remove gum irritation and pressure sores that are causing your gum to bleed. The fit changes should suction comfortably with your gums to prevent any discomfort.
