A common problem I see in my office every day are ill-fitting dentures. I think what people don't realize is that wearing dentures for a longer period of time will cause problems that they're not aware of. Once you remove the teeth, the bone supporting your teeth and dentures will tend to melt away. And that can cause dentures to shift and cause sore spots and move around, and it can be a very, very difficult problem and very uncomfortable for the patient. So a great fitting dentures is something that is a huge benefit to a patient and should be evaluated, a new set of dentures probably every five years. One of the most rewarding procedures that I do in the office is the fabrication of dentures, upper and lower dentures and partial dentures.
