With age, the mouth’s bone structure and soft tissue change. Therefore, over time, the overall fit and comfort of your current dentures can change.
Additionally, new dentures can cause high-pressure sore spots. This is a normal condition and is easily resolved with an adjustment. These adjustments will reduce the pressure placed on the gum tissue for greater comfort. Patients with new dentures should expect a few follow-up appointments for necessary adjustments.
If soreness and discomfort are keeping you from enjoying your dentures, a simple adjustment can make all the difference in the world.

My dentures are hurting my mouth; do I need an adjustment?
Your dentures are specially designed to fit the contours of your mouth, allowing for a fit that feels as close to your natural teeth as possible.

An adjustment will ease the discomfort.
