Getting Rid of Denture Pain

Pain & Irritation Caused by Dentures

How to Prevent Denture Pain?

Prevention is better than a cure most of the time, and luckily with your dentures you can also develop a few good habits to prevent denture pain. Your grandmother may have lectured you about keeping things clean, and like grandma, we agree hygiene is important. So, make sure you clean your dentures regularly – this means removing any food particles from between your gums and dentures, so you won’t feel any irritation. Another good preventative measure for any discomfort is to nip ill-fitting dentures in the bud. Ill-fitting dentures are one of the main sources of discomfort so go see your dentist to get them adjusted. Another cause of sore gums and denture-related pain is slipping dentures. Using a denture adhesive, like Fixodent, can help keep your dentures in place, and leave denture discomfort behind.
