Over time, adjusting the denture may be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the denture. Your bone and gum ridges can recede or shrink, resulting in a loose-fitting denture.
Dentures that do not fit properly should be adjusted by your denturist. Loose dentures can cause various problems, including sores or infections. See your denturist promptly if your denture becomes loose.
