If you’ve worn the same set of traditional dentures for a long time, it’s likely your prosthetic fits like a “large shoe on a small foot.”
That’s because years of denture wear can cause jawbone density to decrease while the dentures, of course, stay the same size.
“Because of the … misfit between the bone and the gum, anytime the patient will chew and function, it will cause rubbing or soreness,” Dr. Ace said.
But Dr. Ace can help improve the fit of your dentures or even create a brand new custom-fitting prosthetic! Dr. Ace is an expert when it comes to the creation and maintenance of dentures, so you’ll feel confident in his care.
