Arizona denture relines (denture adjustments) are sometimes needed. Your mouth, gums, and jawbones are constantly changing which can cause your dentures not to fit properly. In order for your dentures to fit comfortably, you may need to get your dentures relined.
Arizona Dentures Relines Are Important
By having your dentures relined regularly, you’re actually prolonging the life of your dentures and improving the health of your mouth. Improperly fitted dentures can cause pain, irritation, and mouth sores which can lead to more problems than a poorly fitted denture.
Properly Fitted Dentures Reduce Shrinkage
As we age, our mouths and gums may shrink: this is exacerbated by not having your teeth. Properly fitted dentures actually can help reduce this shrinkage. Regular Arizona dentures relines will keep your dentures fitting properly. Brushing your mouth and gums can also help reduce the shrinking that comes with age and missing teeth.
