How to Overcome the Challenges of Wearing Lower Dentures

Wearing lower dentures can be a challenge for many people. The lower dentures are in a mobile environment, where the lips, cheeks, and tongue try to detach the dentures while eating or talking. This can cause pain and ulcers under the dentures and make eating and socializing more of a pain than the pleasure they should be. Loose dentures can cause embarrassing moments and cause a loss of self-confidence.

Since the upper denture is usually the more stable of the two, it is the lower one that yields first and detaches from the gum. Many people find it difficult to maintain their lower dentures, even with fixing glues and a tight fit. The main problem is that lower dentures simply don't produce as much suction as upper ones and can move around inside the mouth or even come off completely when eating, talking, or drinking. If you have problems with these issues, there are a few solutions available to you.

One option is to get implants to support your lower denture. These two small implants will dramatically improve the quality of life for anyone who wears lower dentures. For many, this is an initial struggle, but it can be overcome, but for some it's a difficult skill to master. It may be a faster process for some people than for others, but the jaw crest is always reabsorbed once the teeth are removed, making it difficult for the dentures to stay stable and retain.

However, if your lower jaw has been without natural teeth for quite some time or if you have a flat bone, it may be difficult for your dentures to remain stable, since there is very little bone on which the denture can rest. A lower denture depends to a certain extent on the user learning to use and control it with the tip and sides of the tongue. If you are having difficulty wearing your lower dentures, don't hesitate to contact an expert in dental prosthetics.
