Problems Commonly Caused by ill fitting Dentures:
When poorly fitting dentures are worn for extended periods of time, they can result in problems beyond mere aesthetics and convenience. Common effects from their continued use include:
Poor diet: When dentures are loose or painful, some foodstuff may become difficult to eat. Consequently, it is harder for people to eat the food they enjoy.
Swollen gumsWhen dentures do not fit the contours of your mouth, they are likely rubbing against gum tissue in an unnatural way. As a result, gums can become swollen from irritation.
     SorenessWhen gum tissue is irritated and especially when inflamed, it can experience increased sensitivity and soreness.  

    Blisters: Because poorly fitting dentures tend to rub against specific areas of the mouth, blisters may form to protect affected tissue. In turn, blisters and mouth sores increase discomfort and risk further complications when damaged.  

    Angular cheilitis: When teeth do not properly align, patients are more likely to have an impeded bite. This may cause saliva to pool near the corners of the mouth, resulting in a small fungal infection that causes inflammation.

  Taking Care of Dentures:

·   Clean and brush dentures every day. Plaque and tartar  can still build up just like on natural teeth.
·   Use toothpaste and toothbrush specially designed for  dentures. Regular toothpaste and brushes are abrasive  enough to scratch the surface of dentures.
·   Soak dentures at night. Dentures may lose their shape if  they are allowed to dry out. Remove the dentures, clean  them and soak them in denture cleanser overnight.
·   Visit your dentist for regular hygiene checkups. Even  people who have no natural teeth and wear full dentures  should have their mouth examined annually for signs of  gum disease and oral cancer, and also for proper denture  fit.
·  Store dentures in a safe place. Dentures are delicate and may break if dropped even a few inches. When not wearing dentures, store them away from children and pets.

 * Replace your denture on an average after every five years.
 *Ill fitting dentures if not corrected within a short span of time will lead
 to recurrent sores which are associated with oral cancer.
