Dentures are artificial teeth set into a framework, which rests on your gums. They are used to replace either a full or partial set of missing teeth. The plastic framework is customized to fit your mouth, and due to the fact that changes in your mouth occur, a denture will need to be checked and re-fitted periodically. Dentures play an important role in the maintenance of dental health.
If you experience discomfort because of your dentures, the following measures may ease your discomfort: Rinse your mouth with baking soda or salt. Leave the offending denture out as much as possible. Brush your gums, palate and tongue with a soft bristled toothbrush after every meal and before going to sleep. A sore mouth, if untreated, could lead to further complications.
