A common misconception among denture wearers is their dentures will continue to fit perfectly for years to come. Unfortunately, the tissues change and the bones thin over time, so the mold from which the denture was made does not last forever. Just as everything else in life, nothing is truly permanent. However, if we take proper care of things and see the dentist regularly, dentures can at least be maintained.
When dentures start to become loose and are not staying in place as well, we can perform a denture realign to make them fit better. Assuming that the teeth portion of the dentures are not worn down and in need for replacement, we reshape the gum portion in order to match the contours of the jaw. As a rule of thumb, every seven to eight years, a new denture may need to be fabricated.
