Changes in your face, jaw, and tissues occur constantly. However, your denture prosthesis does not. These physical changes happen gradually and are mostly unnoticeable to you but listed below are some signs indicating your denture should be checked:

  • Food getting caught under denture
  • Mouth soreness, sore spots, possible irritated tissues
  • Loose-fitting, falling out when talking or eating
  • Jaw ridge bone loss
  • Thinning lips, sagging mouth causing a change in facial features e.g. chin sticking out further
  • Denture is not being used and is being left out
  • Headaches, ear pain, neck pain
  • Difficulty chewing food e.g. teeth not sharp anymore
  • Discoloration of pink acrylic or teeth
  • Denture has an odor
