Getting dentures can transform your smile and make eating much more pleasant again. However, you do have to make certain that your dentures fit. If you put in a pair of dentures that are too large, too small, or aren’t the right shape for your mouth, it can lead to sores, a painful time chewing, and even difficultly speaking.
Instead of going with a standard pair of dentures, you need to have custom dentures made that perfectly fit your mouth. Here are a few ways custom dentures will improve your oral health.
No More Sores
Custom dentures are designed to fit perfectly in your mouth. This means they won’t be too loose and won’t rub against your gums in a painful fashion. You won’t develop denture sores or feel any pain when you bite down. Without bleeding denture sores, you won’t be giving bacteria an entryway into your gums, reducing the number of infections you have to deal with.
This will protect you from a number of different illnesses, some of which don’t even appear in your mouth. Infections can easily spread from the gums throughout your body without you being aware of it.
Speaking Isn’t Difficult
Another issue with ill-fitting dentures is that they can make it harder to speak normally. With custom dentures, that won’t be the case. They fit perfectly in your mouth and feel like your old teeth did, so you won’t need as much time adjusting to how they feel in your mouth. This also means that you’ll adjust to eating with your dentures fairly quickly, too. They won’t shift when you chew or bite down on anything.
These are just a few of the ways that custom dentures can help improve your oral health and make eating easier. If you have any questions about custom dentures, contact us today and we’ll provide you with answers.
