Wearing rocking, wobbling, or broken dentures is an accident just waiting to happen. The apparatus is supposed to fit snug and comfy, but for a variety of reasons, this is not always the case. For one, after a period, the device will need to become realigned due to bone deterioration and gum recession. This fate is inevitable because once a tooth and root are removed from the socket, nothing remains to stimulate the area. Traditional dentures rely on suction to stay in the correct position, but when the draw is not there, they can easily slip or fall out of place. Adhesive goops or pads may get you by for awhile, but eventually, a denture repair will be in your best interest.
Moving and unstable teeth make it difficult to chew or bite, which brings dietary restrictions into play. The denture wearer may be limited to soft foods as crunching on hard textures leads to the device flopping around and causing pain. If the replacement teeth are wiggly, the results are not usually good. They can damage existing natural teeth and harm the tongue, gums, or cheeks. The individual will likely have to seek dental services to correct the issues. Don’t allow these incidents to occur by getting a denture repair sooner rather than later.
