My dentures are not very old, but they don’t fit right anymore.
Tissues and bones shrink (atrophy) over time. Along with weight gain or loss, dentures may not fit as well as they once did. Often times a simple reline may be the solution to get them to fit snugly again. However, if there is too much wear or significant atrophy, it may be time for replacements. Ill-fitting dentures can lead to further bone loss and further challenges with future dentures.
A better option over regular dentures are implant-supported dentures. With the help of a few implants, dentures will have a far superior fit, allowing patients to bite into apples or even corn on the cob. The implant-supported dentures are even smaller, thinner, and shorter.
