How to Fix Dentures That Don’t Fit

Nov 19, 2022 | Digital Dentures


Poorly fitting dentures are miserable! Here are our top three tips to improve how your teeth fits:

Tip #1: Are they loose? Consider a reline.

How to fix dentures that don’t fit? When dentures get loose, it’s because the inside no longer fits your gums well. A denture reline removes the inside and replaces it with a new lining that matches your gums and jaw bone as they are today. This helps your denture fit more snugly and reduces rubbing and movement. There are two types of denture reline, hard and soft. Both work wonders for loose teeth. Which one is best for you depends on how recently you had your teeth pulled.

Not sure you’re ready for a reline? Try denture adhesive first.

Tip #2: Are they too big for your mouth? Consider a replacement.

Dentures that are too big are either made too big in the first place or they become too big after a lot of bone loss. If your dentures are too big for your mouth, then they get unseated every time you talk or eat. They rub your gums and catch your cheek. Too big dentures look awkward and feel worse. If your dentures are truly too big, you need to have them re-made to fit your mouth. We make replacement dentures with a superior fit thanks to digital denture technology. How to fix dentures that don’t fit? It starts with a simple, free consultation. To find out if your dentures are truly too big and need replacing or if they are simply ill fitting and need a reline, come talk to Dr. Bec. You’ll be glad you did!

Tip #3: Add Denture Implants

When your denture won’t sit still, but you know that it matches your mouth and isn’t too big or worn out, you’ll want to consider adding denture implants to hold it in place. Implant retained dentures are comfortable and stay in place. Dental implants anchor your denture to your jaw bone and keep it from shifting and moving. Many dentures can be simply converted into implant overdentures, while others need to be re-made in order to add dental implant connections. To find out if your denture is convertible bring your denture to a consultation with Dr. Bec. It’s absolutely free and you’ll leave with answers instead of bills. How to fix dentures that don’t fit?
