Have you noticed your uncle refusing to use his dentures for eating, or your grandmother’s dentures falling out every time she coughs? This is actually not normal because good dentures are supposed to fit properly and comfortably in your mouth.
Unfortunately, some dentures are ill-fitting, and rub against the soft tissues of the mouth. The friction can cause painful ulcers that sometimes get infected, and affect the person’s ability to eat and even sleep.
Despite the discomfort, some seniors are unable or unwilling to get their dentures fixed, especially over time as their facial structure and muscles change. Why not make the investment in dentures worthwhile by seeing a dentist for a good re-fitting?
