My dentures are starting to feel loose in my mouth. What does this mean and what should I do?

February 5, 2017 by rmoynes

Aging and other physiological changes cause tissues and bony ridges in the mouth to change. When the ridge that supports a denture experiences shrinkage and resorption, your dentures may start to feel loose. This can often be rectified with a denture reline, which essentially “refits” the denture to the new ridge contours. As part of a regular maintenance regimen, we recommend relines every 2-3 years where possible, as this maximizes your denture’s fit and proactively eliminates further issues. We offer reline services as a same-day procedure to minimize the time you spend without your dentures.
