Denture stabilisation problems & solution
Denture stabilisation: problems & solutions
Denture wearers have limitations on a daily basis:
- Restricted food choices
- Gum irritation
- Rocking & tilting during speech
- Unaesthetic and embarrassing at times
- Unpleasant odour
- The need to remove them at night
However, the biological consequences and clinical disadvantages seen with dentures are that they impinge a substantial pressure directly on the bony surface. This results in bony remodelling and resorption further inducing an ill-fitting denture by affecting the overall retention and stability.
The biological cost of not taking immediate action following tooth loss is the gradual loss of jaw bone, further complicated by increased costs and overall treatment duration.
