San Antonio dentists like Joseph Perry, DDS, have seen hundreds of patients looking for help with ill-fitting dentures. Whether you are looking for traditional dentures or more cutting edge technology like snap-on dentures, finding the right fit can make all the difference.
When dentures fit poorly, you know it. There are some key signs that will tell you right away:
Some people subscribe to the train of thought that, if they ignore a problem, eventually it will get better or just go away. This is not true at all when it comes to ill-fitting dentures.
Dentures that fit poorly can change a patient’s face shape and be a constant source of frustration, a demoralizing situation that can be damaging to your confidence and emotional well being. But bad dentures can have damaging physical effects as well - when ill-fitting dentures cause pain and are awkward to maneuver, it can make necessary daily activities like eating a chore. This may cause patients to avoid eating as often as they should, leading to them developing malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies. In time, this problem can become life threatening if not treated.
In the past, high quality dentures were much harder to come by and many patients had to settle for the best pair that they could find regardless of fit. But those days are long gone. Patients today can choose from many types of dentures to fit a range of budgets and physical needs.
Better, stronger, and more comfortable dentures are within your reach. If you are suffering from ill-fitting dentures, contact San Antonio Denture Solutions to schedule an appointment and learn more about your denture options today.
