Loose or non-fitting dentures can be awkward socially or even affect the way one can chew effectively.
It is important to digest our food properly and this process starts when we are chewing our food. Improper digestion can lead to bloating and or discomfort in the stomach.
If dentures are loose, some may find it necessary to use specific gum ‘glue’ to make them stable. This is a short-term solution as the paste can attract bacteria if not cleaned off properly and may cause the supporting gums to have problems.
Long term solutions to this may include both Suction Dentures (Non Medisave Claimable) or Implant Overdentures (Medisave Claimable).
The treatment process can differ between individuals and this can be covered in more detail during a full consultation.
