Pain & Irritation Caused by Dentures

Wearing or doing anything new, you may feel a little discomfort in the beginning. The same applies to dentures, and it’s not uncommon for new dentures to cause pain, sores and discomfort at first. The pain associated with new dentures is not necessarily a bad thing, rather it’s a sign of getting used to something new. However, sometimes pain and irritation is not just “teething pain,” but can be a sign that something is not right – like ill-fitting or slipping dentures. It’s important to know why you’re getting sores and pain with a new set of dentures and what you can do about it. Our articles and guides are here with the solutions to different causes of denture discomfort and denture pain relief tips so you can enjoy life with your dentures.
