Denture problems

Information

Ill-fitting dentures can move. This may cause sore spots. Denture adhesive may help cut down on this movement. Dental implants may be recommended in most cases. Implants help stabilize the denture, minimize their movement and prevent sores. They should only be placed by a well-trained dental specialist.

See a dentist if your dentures do not fit correctly. They may need to be adjusted or relined.
