Denture Adjustments

Denture Adjustments

Denture adjustments are vital for ensuring a comfortable and effective fit of your prosthetic. Over time, changes in the mouth’s structure, such as gum shrinkage or bone loss, can affect how dentures sit and function. Adjustments involve minor modifications made by our dentist to refine the fit of the denture, addressing issues like sore spots, looseness, or discomfort. These alterations not only enhance comfort but also improve the denture’s functionality, allowing for better chewing, speaking, and overall ease of use. Whether it’s a simple realignment or more intricate modifications, regular adjustments can significantly prolong the life of your dentures and maintain your oral health and comfort.
