Don't fit: I have had dentures since I was twenty three years old. I am now twenty six.
I got new dentures and they do not fit. My dentist has tried making a hard reline but nothing seems to work. The dentist said I may have to accept wearing denture cream. HELP! ...Visitor from IN
There are many variables that come to play when dentures are no longer fitting especially if they were just made.
Usually the number one reason is bone loss. If there is a minimal ridge then the dentures will remain loose.
A great solution is using either mini dental implant or traditional implants that will help retain your dentures and prevent further bone loss. Ask your dentist if he can consult with you regarding these.
Many denture wearers problems are resolved with these implants.
