Denture pain typically stems from poor fitting or poorly adjusted dentures. It may also be a result of new dentures, worn over soft tissues that have not developed thick, toughened layers of protective keratin. If you are experiencing gum and mouth irritation, problems eating and speaking, mouth infections and/or dentures that move around in your mouth, give our doctors at Southern Cross Dental a call to discuss your treatment options.
If you wear dentures, it is very important you keep your mouth clean and healthy. In addition, you should never experience pain when wearing your dentures. If you do experience pain from your dentures and this discomfort is not treated by speaking slowly, eating soft foods or using an adhesive, your dentures may need to be replaced. At Southern Cross Dental, we have plenty of tooth-replacement options for you to choose from if dentures aren’t working out.
If you have dentures that are causing you pain, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at our practice, visit www.southerncrossfamilydentistry.com for more information.
