Where Denture Pain Usually Comes From

Posted on 5/15/2018 by Brock Hinton
Denture Pain Prosthodontic Dental Group CA 95819-4638Dentures shouldn't be painful. They should function as your own natural teeth. However, there are some times when they do become painful.

Why Your Dentures are Painful

There are several reasons why you may feel pain when you're wearing your dentures. One of the reasons is that you've just recently gotten a set of dentures. Fortunately, this is something that will only last for a few weeks as you get used to wearing your new teeth.

Sometimes this is because the dentures don't fit properly, but this is something that we can fix once you've made an appointment with us in our office. When you've had your dentures made somewhere other than in our office, it's possible that they've been poorly made. In this case your gums will grow sore from the dentures rubbing against them.

No amount of denture "glue" will fix this problem. Instead, you'll need to have our office make a completely new set of dentures for you - the ones that fit your mouth properly. You may also get mouth infections from wearing your dentures, but this is quite rare, fortunately. Here you'll need to learn how to take care of your dentures better.

Proper care involves brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash - just like you would need to do if you still had your own natural teeth. You may also find some relief from using Orajel for this pain.

However, if you don't start taking care of your dentures properly, you're only prolonging the problem. Having properly fitted dentures is important. Whether this is your first pair of dentures or you've been wearing them for a while, we can help you. Schedule an appointment with us today and we'll get you into a set of dentures that makes you feel as though you still have your own natural teeth in your mouth.
